Artifacts are external resources (links) that you can embed within a chapter. You can access the "Artifact Links" field in the chapter "Settings." Enter a new link on each line of the "Artifact Links" field, and the chapter will attempt to embed the resource.

Access Requirements

To be properly embedded, any linked resources must be made available to the public on their original site.


You can include headings between artifacts by including a line of plain text before or after links. Here's an example that would place a heading that says "Video" before an embedded video:


Forced Embedding

Most file types will be properly embedded automatically. However, you can also force a link to be embedded a particular way by including the desired type code followed by the vertical bar character before the link. (The vertical bar key is found below the backspace key on most keyboards.) Table 1 provides a list of available artifact types. Here's an example that would force a zip file in Google Drive to be embedded as an Articulate Storyline element:
