Add YouTube videos


1. Introduction

You can embed a YouTube video in a module content area so students can watch it without leaving the module. The steps are different depending on whether the YouTube is public or unlisted.


2. Embed a public YouTube video in a module 

a. Enter a content area.

b. Hover your mouse over Build Content and click YouTube Video.
YouTube video menu option
 
c. If you know the title of the video, type it in the Search box, or use keywords to search for relevant videos. Click Go.
Search YouTube box

d. A list of search results is returned. Click the Select button next to the relevant video to choose it.  
Select a video button

e. Enter a description if necessary.

f. In the Mash-up Options, you can choose how your video is displayed to students. We recommend the Thumbnail option. This displays the video in a pop-out player when students click it. Embed Video places the player directly within the content area but takes up more screen space.
