Let's say we want to enhance our lesson by integrating a SoundCloud podcast.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to SoundCloud and find the podcast you wish to embed.

  2. Click on the 'Share' button and select 'Embed' to generate the embed code for the podcast.

  3. Copy the generated embed code to your clipboard.

Next, edit the lesson where you want to include the podcast:

  1. Open the lesson in your preferred editor.

  2. Switch to the source code or HTML view of the lesson.

  3. Paste the copied embed code into the desired location within the source code.

Example of embedded SoundCloud code:

<iframe width="100%" height="300" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" allow="autoplay" src=""></iframe><div style="font-size: 10px; color: #cccccc;line-break: anywhere;word-break: normal;overflow: hidden;white-space: nowrap;text-overflow: ellipsis; font-family: Interstate,Lucida Grande,Lucida Sans Unicode,Lucida Sans,Garuda,Verdana,Tahoma,sans-serif;font-weight: 100;"><a href="" title="Take It Easy Records" target="_blank" style="color: #cccccc; text-decoration: none;">Take It Easy Records</a> · <a href="" title="Deep House 2024" target="_blank" style="color: #cccccc; text-decoration: none;">Deep House 2024</a></div>

By following these steps and example, you can seamlessly add enriching SoundCloud and any external podcasts to your lessons.
