What is <> embed code?
An <> embed code is simply an HTML code that enables you to navigate content on your website from another website. Embedding content such as videos, presentations, quizzes, and even surveys is useful to enrich your course creation.
Embedding a code is simple and easy. It doesn’t require technical skills. Most of the time, all you need to do is copy-paste the code from the original website to your website. By doing so, you can integrate a wide range of multimedia content from different sources on your all-in-one platform. Students don’t need to shift window tabs from time to time as content can be displayed and navigated on Teachfloor.
If you want to customize the content appearance, you may use CSS styles. However, this will require basic knowledge of coding.
3 Easy Steps to Embed a Code on Teachfloor
