LinkVsEmbedded

Here is the difference between an embedded item versus a link to an item.

 

And just for your information, an embedded item is usually surrounded by an iframe, like this html code.  I did bold type iframe at the beginning and end of the statement to show how it surrounds the internal code.  I also added the red color to the url below for a comparison below.

<iframe src=”https://onedrive.live.com/embed?cid=5A4AD7C57D4654DC&resid=5A4AD7C57D4654DC%21581478&authkey=ALvOjCWjDjUzsT4&em=2” width=”476″ height=”288″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no”></iframe>


Here is what a link to the document looks like.

Link to document

Here is the url that takes me to the document from the link above:

https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=5A4AD7C57D4654DC!581478&authkey=!AMftR-FsXG7Fx5w&ithint=file%2cdocx

You might notice that the url is very similar to the url (in red) in the embedded code example.


Hopefully this shows the difference between an embedded item and a link to that item.  And by the way, an embedded item can be a document, calendar, video, prezi, or more!  And so can a link to said item.

 

The major limitation with school loop is that only users who are classified as Administrators can add embedded items (so iframes).  Lame.
