Tip: Embed Webpages within your Universal Builder Project

By Sara Zimmerman      March 24, 2010 -- 03:02 PM
You can have outside website appear right in your Universal Builder page. Using an iframe in a label allows you to embed code into the embed box on the Universal Builder page or a tab in the team pages. Insert code like:

You cannot use iframe code with the text editor. Above is a screen capture of the code. We cannot put the exact code in this text editor for you. So here is the code without the brackets <> that you can copy, replace the URL, add the brackets, and then paste the code into the embed box.

Add a Widget

By Barbara Bray      June 25, 2008 -- 06:54 AM
You can share that you are a lifetime member of eCoach or post a widget from eCoach on any blog. Go to My Toolkit to Widgets











A widget is a logo or image of a site that your users can click to access that site quickly. We created four different widgets for you: the eCoach logo, I am a Lifetime Member of eCoach, one that goes to our free eLibrary, and a login to eCoach.

Choose one of the widgets to put on the sidebar of your blog. If you use another blog outside of eCoach, embed the code from the widget you would like to share with your readers.

New Features in Survey Tool

By Barbara Bray      June 19, 2008 -- 06:34 AM
The survey tool works with any program and can be shared with anyone on your team, specific members, and others outside of eCoach. We even have newspapers using eCoach for public only so they are the only ones seeing the results. We have received requests for some new features in the surveys.

You now have access to the text editor in the description and each question. What that means is that you can upload images, videos, podcasts, and most types of files.

Embed Code - We made it easy!

By Barbara Bray      June 6, 2008 -- 09:23 PM
Now you can add Web 2.0 tools like SlideShare or stream videos from Teacher Tube using our new Embed Code box in the Universal Builder. Under Contents either Add a New Page or Edit an existing page and now your will see an Embed Code box.













I went to TeacherTube and found a great presentation by Karl Fisch called "Did you Know?" and copied the embed code.










After you click Save. The video will appear below the text box.
 

You can use the text box to introduce your embedded file or video.

You can still use View Source that is in the lower left corner of your text editor to embed code. The text editor works with blogs, surveys now, message center, and calendar. We found using View Soure was a little difficult for some of our members so now with the embed code box, all you have to do is copy, paste, and save. You also have a similar box to embed code on the sidebar of your blogs and Universal builder.
