1. Open your Word document in your web browser through your Office 365 account.
2. Select "File" then "more file options." "More file options" is found by clicking on the three horizontal dots under the folder icon.
3. Choose "share" then choose "embed."
4. Copy the provided embed code and paste it into your blog post or web page editor just as you would when embedding videos from YouTube or Vimeo. You can alter the size of the display by changing the width and height dimensions in the embed preview window.
Applications for Education
Embedding a Word document into your website or blog can be a convenient way to share documents with parents or students without having to re-write the content in your website or blog editor. It's more convenient for you and it's more convenient for them because they don't have to download the documents in order to read them.
