Copy and Paste

Many Web2.0 sites such as youtube and slideshare (many others as well). Allow the user to copy html code and then paste it into other web applications. Google Earth happens to be one of these. When looking at some of these sites look for the embed or copy commands to instantly copy the necessary code for use with Google Earth. A little creativity goes a long way.


If you have created media that does not reside on a web 2.0 application but rather on your own school's server, you can still use your media by using your own html scripting.

Below are some sample codes that you can use to enhance your Google Earth Placemarks or link to other media on the web.

Add a line break </br>
