NaviGlobe Treks spreadsheet

Project Title: This will be be the title for the world to view and to search. Make it specific and descriptive.

Your name: Leave blank if you don’t want your name to show up associated with the project.

Project description: The more descriptive the better. This information will go on the first introduction page of your site as well as into the database for other’s to see.

Link to description page image: This image will be the background image for the description page (first page) of your website. Make sure the image is a large file or the image will be pixelated.

Grade level: This makes your project searchable by other teachers.

Subject: This makes your project searchable by other teachers.

Privacy setting: If you want to keep the project private and not posted on the website for others to use, select that option.

Step 2:

Complete each row of the spreadsheet. Each row is the information that goes on 1 website page.

Page title:

The title of that particular page within the website. Suggested title is the location or the main thing you will be looking at or describing.

Mainframe link:

There are 4 options of what you can put into the mainframe. Each option is hyperlinked to screencast videos to watch:

Streetview image

Maps_ Share image

Maps_ Embed html

YouTube video

Static image from Google Drive

360 Image

Stock 360 images


Text/ descriptor: Write whatever you want to include on your page. This should either be directions or information about the location.

YouTube link: Copy and paste the link to the YouTube video, leave this blank if you don’t want a video. If this is left blank, the first image will show instead.

Image link: There are two options for this.

  1. If image is from the web: Copy the URL address of the image you want and paste it into the cell.
  2. If image is from your  Google Drive: Click the three horizontal dots in the upper right corner of the image, select “share image” and copy that URL. DO NOT just copy the URL from the address bar or it won’t work. 

Caption: Write in a caption for the photo, or properly cite the image if need be.

Step 3: 

Complete all rows in the spreadsheet, keep in mind that each row will make 1 webpage.

  • Potential use: Students could each be assigned a row to complete and the class could collaboratively create a website.

Step 4:

Publish the website.

Select if you want others to be able to view it or not. Keep in mind that if you select public, that anyone has the ability to get a copy of your your sheet so that they can customize it to fit their needs. It is a copy, your original sheet will remain in tact. This is to allow teachers to cut down on time due to the fact that they won’t have to start from scratch to make their own website.

Step 5:

Copy the URL address generated. Paste this into your address bar and it will take you to your site that was created.

The URL address is also pasted into the original spreadsheet at the top,.

Copy the URL address: Everything after the @ sign.

Step 6:

Paste the URL into Google Classroom or anywhere else you want to share it so that students can access it.
