Sketchfab for Atto – New Plugin for embedding 3D content in Moodle

Sketchfab for Atto is a new and small plugin for the Atto text editor which enables you to embed the sketchfab content to rich content areas within Moodle.

You can add any sketchfab content into your Moodle course just by clicking the button in your Atto toolbar, paste a link to a Sketchfab model and the plugin will do the work of embedding a good-looking thumbnail into your post for you.
