Embedding Prezi

Brown’s Instructional Technology Group reached out with a faculty request for embedding web presentations in the Prezi format into their blog. We found a plugin, tested it and it works.

Embedding a Prezi is somewhat technical but is fairly well described on the plugin website. One thing to note: the plugin is already uploaded, so step 1 is unnecessary.

New Theme for Brown Blogs: Twenty Fourteen

I just finished switching the blogs.brown.edu theme to twenty fourteen after confirming that the Kodiak theme did not support visitor comments. This theme has a lot of nice features and looks clean. One downside is that it doesn’t look like Brown University.

UPDATE: The Twenty Fourteen theme has a lot of customizations available within the theme and after choosing a nice campus green image for the header, it is looking quite a bit more like Brown.
