Sharing BOX.com

Do you need to share your Rice Box folder with your students? If so, here is an article by Box enabling you to do this in your Canvas course.

Embedding Box Folder – https://docs.box.com/docs/box-embed

Here is the code they provided to use on your Canvas Pages.

<iframe src=”https://{custom_domain}.app.box.com/embed_widget/s/{shared link value}?view={list or icon}&sort={name, date, or size}&direction=ASC&theme={blue or gray}” width=”{pixels}” height=”{pixels}” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen></iframe>

We’ve noticed that Chrome browser prohibits this embed code. But it will work for Safari, Edge, and Firefox. You can always use a simple link to share the folder if this is a concern.
