What is an Embeddable Object?
An embeddable object is created with one application and embedded into a webpage created by another application.
Embedding the object, rather than inserting or pasting it, ensures that the object retains its original format.
This is different from linking as the object is a fully-functioning window interface. Students do not have to leave the current page to access and interact with the resource.
Difference Between Link and Embed
Link - URL that you click to get to another site
Embed Code - Adds an interface window in your page so that you can play the video without visiting YouTube
