Embedding Better: Great Sites for Embeddable Content

Jayne Miller wrote this on Jun 3, 2015

In a fresh discussion window in Chalkup, you’ll see the option to add an embed code under media-based discussions.

From videos to custom quizzes to that really neat Instagram of a student art project, you can share it all with your class.

For seriously user-friendly, fun, and informative content that’s embeddable, try these sites.

Quizlet
Their tagline says it all: Quizlet lets you study anything for free. You can tap into their massive bank of shared quizzes and flashcards or create your own set for your class.

YouTube
Hey, we know it’s kind of obvious, but it's also easy to overlook that you can pop the embed code of any YouTube video into Chalkup for easy viewing. Lots of winning edu videos to go around. We listed a few faves earlier this year.

Vimeo
Not to be outdone, Vimeo has some gorgeous content. Ideal for art, music, culture, and filmmaking classes, there are plenty of docu-series to share. Check out what The New Yorker and NPR have cooking. Or follow Vimeo’s short of the week for a master class in storytelling.

 

SlideShare
SlideShare could be a new way to share lecture slides with your entire class. Similarly, you could find that SlideShare is your new best friend for classroom tips and teaching inspiration.

 

EduCanon
Take a video. Make it interactive. You can insert your own comments and questions into an existing video or select from EduCanon’s library of videos that already have been crafted into full-on lessons. Nifty.

Flickrit
Share a slideshow from Flickr (or Instagram) with your students. Flickrit will let you customize and pull in photos by a specific user or tag. Or you could select a Flickr album to embed.

Pro tip: when you’re creating your slideshow, use a “responsive” size for your layout. When the time comes to copy your code, it works best if you use the https version.
