Thing Link Tags: Embedded Video


Embedded video can really bring life to a 360 tour. In the first example below, a tag on an easel advertising library programs becomes an opportunity to publicize a Therapy Dog program held every fall and spring semester during exam week.


A row of computers across from the Reserve Desk at which students search the library catalog becomes the perfect place to embed an instructional video demonstrating how to find articles at the library.

    ThingLink embed tags make it easy to drop in code from other sites to embed forms, maps, documents, and video services offering embed options like Youtube and Vimeo. Video can also be embedded with a simple link using the Video tag , which also offers space for a text annotation.

    These simple tags load quickly and are very easy to read. The background and text colors can be customized to meet the design needs of your tour and/or subject guide. The size of the box can also be adjusted.
