"Ellie (cc'd) and I are currently co-teaching the Interactive Data Visualization course at the Graduate Center and we were hoping to put together an engaging 'microsite' to host our students' final projects.
Ideally we would like to create a site that has the look and feel of an industry-level standalone site so that we can get our students traction in non-academic communities as well as within the CUNY community.
Thanks for your help,
Aucher and Ellie"

Thanks for passing along the request.
There may be other ways in which the Commons team could support the sharing of this student work. In the past, we've worked with users to develop custom embed codes, so that custom applications can be hosted elsewhere and then embedded via iframe into Commons sites. This is made easier if student work is built and shared on the same platform. For this reason, it'd be helpful to have a sense of how many projects we're talking about, and the specific technologies/tools that are being used to develop them.

Hi Boone -- here is the site these faculty wound up creating for their students: https://interactivedatavis.github.io/student-project-microsite/dist/
Is it possible for us to provide a way for them to use an iframe to incorporate that site into a CAC website?
It's not absolutely necessary that we do that, so if it's not possible, it's okay

Yes, we can do that - the fact that it's a single site makes it fairly easy.
I've implemented a shortcode [interactive-data-vis-microsites]. By default, it shows an iframe with width="100%" and height="480", but you can pass new arguments into the shortcode, to experiment with what looks best on your theme:
