Embed

The interactive embed allows you to use third-party content or material that you have produced in other platforms like YouTube or SlideShare.

To relate external content you can also use the Download  element or the Embed. View the related articles for more information.

Configuration

The configuration is very simple, you only have to indicate the URL of the element to be embedded.

When you enter the URL you will see the icon of the selected service becomes colored, YouTube in this case, and a green star appears indicating that all is well. 

There are situations in which an error indicator appears as follows if, for example, you want to use a service of those currently admitted or if you have indicated a wrong URL

Currently we support the platforms YouTube, Vimeo, SlideShare, Google Docs, Kaltura, iVoox and Genially. If you miss any service write to use and we will evaluate including it.

Considerations

Availability of the content

The embed element is extremely versatile and useful, but it always has to be used with precaution.

Take into account that this type of element is not housed in the isEazy servers and therefore we cannot guarantee they are always available. Each content supplier has its own policy for managing content. For example, it could happen that YouTube deletes some content because it does not comply with copyrights.

You should also take in to account that the user who is going to consume those resources should have complete access to Internet. There are occasions in which the courses are uploaded to a SCORM platform for employees that later has no access outside of the intranet. In these cases the embedded elements will not be correctly visualized.

Visualization in the editor.

Not having the possibility of controlling the behavior of third part content impedes their reproduction in the editor so they do not negatively affect the experience of use. For security reasons, it is also not allowed to reproduce these elements in the viewer when the content is opened locally. If you want to check how the results as you work, use the preview. Your trainees will see the content directly just as in the preview. 

Google Docs

When using Google Docs you can’t share url from the browser while you’re editing your Google document. You have to use “share” option by url and configure permissions to edit or only to view

When you embed a Google document on the slide there are two operation ways:

  • As embedded document: When using the element in a large gap of your slide you can see it embedded in the slide itself (you may get scrollbars depending on the document).
  • As external link: Using the element in a small gap or responsive mode will behave as an external link as you do not have enough space for display. The content will be opened in a separate tab to ensure readability.
