1. Introduction

You can create an item to present a variety of content.

Using the functions in the Content Editor text box editor you can:

  • Attach files: PowerPoint, Word, PDF etc. (NB: these will require downloading to view them)
  • Embed multimedia: YouTube, Images etc.
  • Insert equations
  • Quotations
  • Web links
  • Tables
  • Emoji

You have creative control over how your content appears which increases student engagement, such as embedding content via YouTube for example is easier for students to view and because it displays within MyBeckett they are more likely to move onto the next content item. Embedding is much easier for students to view content that is displayed within a content item rather than having to click a link to view and then navigate back to MyBeckett and/or downloading a media file or other content onto their devices and then opening it with the appropriate program.
