To host your audio files on Google Drive:
  1. Open
  2. Upload your audio file
  3. Once uploaded, right-click to share and select 'Share'
    Google Drive Share
  4. Once in the pop-up dialogue, ensure that the link sharing is set to 'Anyone with the link can view'
  5. Click 'Copy Link'
    Anyone Can View
  6. Your link is almost ready to use. When you paste it, it will be formatted as follows:
    You will need to change 'view' in this link to 'preview'

Next, you will need the code that will generate the player. To do this, place your link in the following code:
   src="your link goes here">

This code can now be placed in an embed widget, for example, on a Resource Board page. The results appear as here:
Google Drive Audio Shared, as embed
