In our 1702 release of PebblePad, scheduled to go live on 1st February, we'll say goodbye to our YouTube block and in its place we'll welcome a new and much improved Embed Block. The new Embed Block will allow tutors to embed content from a wide range of services and, of course, allow students to do the same with their submissions. Below you'll find a list of supported services along with a very short overview of how it all works.
Select the 'Add Content' option from within the portfolio or template builder and then drag and drop the 'Embed' option onto the design canvas.
Once you've dragged the Embed Block onto the Canvas you'll see a box where you can enter your embed code. You'll also see a list of supported services consistent with the list above.
Head over to platform that you'd like to embed content from and copy the embed code.

Simply paste the code into the box on the Embed Block
As soon as you've pasted your code you'll see the embedded content within your portfolio or template. If you realise you've entered the wrong embed code, no problem, simply click on replace embedded link and repeat steps 3 and 4 above.
