Integrating an embed code to the platform

an embed code (or “redirect link”) allows you to embed an object that already exists on the Internet into a course: a Google drive document, Prezi presentation, etc.

For example, our favorite online content creation tools need embed codes since the documents are created on the Internet 😉
