Charted growth of communities of practice in local government
I thought I would try out Google Gadgets as a way of showing the growth in usage of the IDeA CoP platform. It was simpler to set up than I imagined. A straight forward process of adding the data to a Google Spreadsheet, inserting the Gadget to the spreasheet, and then selecting the option to ‘Publish Gadget’. The resultant html code is pasted into your web page – and hey presto – your chart. Full details of the process here.
Next step is to find a way of keeping this updated in real-time. Watch this space!
