Wiki ADVANCE Skills - Embedding Media Resources

• Add a Widget - Slides
• Add a Widget - Video
• Add a Widget - Google Survey Forms
• Add a Widget - Maps, Posters, and More

The process for adding widgets is the same for all resources that you want EMBEDDED!
Place the cursor - click on widgets - choose TYPE of resource - then add the "EMBED" CODE.
Check the placement and size of the widget on the wiki page is right for you.
Then SAVE.
Finding the code is a couple of tricky advance skills, but once you GET this - wikis become rich and think with multi-media resources.

Example of CODE: You do not need to read it or ask to understand it - Just Copy/Paste IT!
