Changing Tile Size on Symabloo

From one of my graduate students:

No problem.  If you look at the code Symbaloo gives you to embed>></iframe>

Just change where it says width=”1280px” height=”600px” to numbers that are larger or smaller depending on your needs.  You might have to play around with it to make it look right.

I was able to find a way to insert my Symbaloo into google sites. I was having issues with getting my Symbaloo tiles to show up when I was sharing it from the Symbaloo page, and Scott suggested putting my Symbaloo into google sites. A few people in our class have asked how I did it, so here is a video that is helpful!

Symbaloo Editing Tips for MAc Users

Posted: 20/03/2015 by broadyesl in Symbaloo

From one of my graduate students:

Ok, so I use a mac and the commands are different for anyone wanting to use this and running into the same issues.

Here’s the commands to group tiles when on a Mac:

  • Goto Options
  • Click “Add new marker” (Bar should slide to green)
  • Highlight tiles to include. Don’t “right click” anything.
  • Edit in menu to the left.

I love Symabloo to curate knowledge for very specific purposes on smaller scale.  It is a great tool for educators and unit planning.
