Some Library databases permit you to "embed" articles, videos, or other content directly into your Canvas course. Embed codes for content found in Library databases must only be used by your students within Canvas. They must not be used on webpages, blogs, wikis, or other online sites that could be accessed by non-RVCC users.
An embed code is a block of html that can be inserted into the HTML editor in Canvas so that the content appears directly within the page. Here is an example of a video inserted into this page using an embed code:
The embed code looks like this:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/i9fs5fVuRSk?rel=0" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Database content that can be embedded will have an option to copy an embed code. For example:
Kanopy Streaming Videos
Embed codes might be represented by the icon
Although not a Library database, YouTube is another site where you can often find embed codes so that the video plays directly within your course, instead of requiring the student to leave Canvas and watch the video on YouTube. Embed codes are found in the YouTube Share options on a video's page. Not all videos include embed codes.
