Google books now embed

I have just discovered that you can embed a google book in the same way you'd embed a Youtube video. From my searching around it seems that there are limits and you certainly can not get the whole book embedded, but it does allow readers to get a flavour of the text.

I have yet to try posting/embedding anything on Fronter/London MLE just yet, but if this works and enough texts are available, then this could be a really great tool for teachers.

Update - the code is in iframe and this usually a no-go for Fronter-but that is only the case at the moment- it could change of course..

Here is an excellent text for any new ICT Coordinator and should be on the required reading of NAACE ICT Coordinator course. Have a scan through, to try before you buy
