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. View the related articles for more information.


The configuration is very simple, you only have to indicate the URL of the element to be embedded and if it is one of the services supported by isEazy you will see that a green cross will immediately appear indicating that everything has gone 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

Content availability

The embed element is extremely versatile and useful, but should always be used with caution.

Please note that these types of elements are not hosted on isEazy Author's servers and therefore we cannot guarantee that they will always be available. Each content provider has its own content management policy. It can happen, for example, that Youtube deletes a content because it violates copyright laws and you stop viewing it in your course without prior notice.

You should also bear in mind that for this remedy to be effective, the user must have full access to the Internet. There are times when courses are uploaded to a platform such as SCORM for employees who then do not have access outside the intranet. In these cases the embedded elements will not display correctly.

Display in the editor

As we cannot control the behaviour of third-party content, we prevent it from being displayed in the editor so that it does not negatively affect the user experience. For security reasons it is also not allowed to play these elements in the viewer when the content is opened locally. If you want to check how your project is looking you can use the preview.


If you have videos that you want to add to isEazy but you don't want people to find them on your YouTube channel or through searches, we recommend you to upload your video in Hidden mode. This option allows you to share the video only with the people who have the link, and since the link has a lot of characters at the end, it already serves as a sufficient security layer so that any person cannot find it.
On this Google support page everything is explained: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/157177?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en


Similarly, if you have videos hosted on Vimeo, that you want to embed on isEazy Author but you don't want people to be able to find them on your channel, neither through searches, we recommend you to upload your video in Unlisted mode.

In this article, the access properties of each setting are explained so that you can adjust them correctly according to your needs: https://help.vimeo.com/hc/es/articles/12426199699985

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.
Google Drive

In this case we offer the possibility of embedding in your projects files that you have stored in Google Drive. To do so, as with Google Docs, you must find the option to Share and use the link that is generated to be able to embed it in your course. Note that when you copy the url, you must select the option that any user with the link can open the file, otherwise you won't be able to embed it.

This way you can embed pdf files, powerpoint, images and videos you have in your Google Drive account. 

As with Google Docs, these embedded resources work within the document if they have enough space to work, or as an external link if you are working in a small space.

Currently we do not recommend embedding videos using Google Drive due to a bug that affects several browsers and devices. If you need to embed a video, we highly suggest using other services that offer this functionality.

In Canva, you will have to follow some steps in order to get their “smart embed link”. In your design, click the ... button on the top right corner of the editor. Select “embed” and confirm that you want your link to be made public. Copy the HTML “smart embed link”.

Editing Embed element in accessible mode

  • As this element is prepared to offer third party content from external services to isEazy we cannot ensure accessibility compliance regarding the internal content of this element.

    Therefore, when a user accesses the course in Accessible Mode, he/she will be able to choose between two options in the Embed element:

    • read an alternative description 
    • consume the original content (which might not be accessible).

Clicking on "Show alternative description" will open a window with the alternative description that the content creator has configured:

This alternative description of the Embed item can be configured from the side edit menu:
