Embedding Web Content in Your Presentation

Last Updated: Jun 25, 2013 02:29PM EDT
LectureTools allows you to add hyperlinks or embedded web content to your presentations as multimedia slides. These slides can automatically format links from a variety of content providers and websites.
For supported video and audio providers, a player will automatically embed in the multimedia slide. All other sources will embed as a hyperlink, and generally will also display with a preview image and short description.
To add a website, online video, or other web content to your presentation:
  1. In the Prepare tab, select Multimedia Slide from the Create Interactive Slides menu.
    create multimedia slide
  2. Select a desired location from the Insert After Slide menu.
  3. Enter the slide title you would like to use in the Title field.
  4. Copy the URL of the article, video, or website you are using to your clipboard.
  5. Paste the URL into the URL field.
