Embedding interactive web object in Rise

Aug 06, 2019

Hi, I'm currently doing an onboarding course for some employees and I would love to use a web object from our website.


We have this interactive 'Acoustic Simulator' on the website and I was wondering if it is possible to embed the interactive web object in the Rise course using the Embed block? If I just use the URL it adds a link that opens the webpage in a new window which is not what I'm looking for. 

If I use the iframe code <iframe src="https://soft-cells.com/acoustics/simulator"></iframe> it doesn't show at all - and I'm not really looking to embed the entire page but just the interactive simulator object. Is that possible? And if so, how?

Hi there, Morten. It sounds like you're following best practice here, and the site may not allow its content to be embedded in frames:

Success depends on whether or not the site you linked to allows their content to be embedded in frames. You might only see part of the content you’re trying to embed or you might not see any content at all!

I tried your URL and had the same results. If you haven't already, I'd reach out to the people who administer that interaction on your site to see if they can offer a way to embed it in the Rise 360 course. Good luck!

I see the question from Morten Jacobsen is already 1 year old, but I will say this anyway.
Iif you do have the separate files (folder) of that simulation web object, you can do the following.

  • Create a blank Storyline with matching dimensions (resolution) to the simulation web object
  • Disable the User Interface completely
  • Create 1 slide and place a web object in where you load the simulator files
  • Publish to review 360
  • In Rise, create an Interactive  Storyline Block and load the review360 publication
