Engaging Content. Whether to Embed or Link?

Showing a collection of PowerPoint slides pulled from an OpenText Content Server was the subject of a recent post. At that time, I used presentations from our Content World Users' conference of a year ago to show how a collection of related materials from a secure enterprise repository could be embedded in the post using OpenText Widget Services (OTWS).

Last week was the latest Content World 2011 conference, which provided me with a rich set of new materials to show Widget Services' capabilities. Note: All of these presentations are already available individually from OpenText Online Communities (login required)

Full screen collection – In my previous post the collection was embedded within the post. You could expand it if you chose. But there are times when you want to show full-screen off-the-bat. So here are a collection of presentations related to our eDOCS offering:
  • Just click on this link to view the collection 
    • Select one, get details, view it in a player, download it, or get the embed code to use elsewhere.

Collection embedded – Frankly I find the full screen version above more compelling, but there are times when you need to embed in context, much as you might embed a video from OpenText Video Services. So here is the same collection embedded here to illustrate that:

A single presentation in a player – In contrast, here is a single presentation, this time about Widget Services, opened in a viewer when you click this link.
