Within the Immerse editor there are a number of easy to use widgets which help you to add visual and interactive elements to your content, making more engaging to your readers.

Each widget is designed to keep your reader within your content rather than following links to external sites. For example, your reader and open and explore a Google map right within the story - no need to leave the content to visit Google maps.

It's recommended that you include a variety interactive elements using the widgets options throughout your content and have at least one on each page. The widgets available are listed below.

Images

Add images to your Immerse level using the image widget, this is one of the easiest ways to instantly break up copy text and make your content look more appealing. Once inserted, there are a number of formatting options available, such as zooming, adding captions and hyperlinking your image to an external URL or Turtl Story.

Quotes

Add shareable quotations to your text like the one above. These are a great way to make your copy text more interesting and highlight important quotes. The quotes are also shareable on social media and email so you can really get your readers to engage with your content and open up opportunities for others to see your content on social networks (you can enable/disable this functionality where required).
