Embedding Youtube videos
Videos from the streaming platform YouTube can be embedded in course rooms. The videos can then be played directly in the page.
The embedding can be done anywhere where the editor is available, for example in Pages or Forum posts.
The embedding of the YouTube videos takes place as a two-click solution in compliance with data protection regulations.
Youtube videos can be embedded anywhere where the editor is available, for example in the resources Text field, Page and Book, but also in Forum posts.
We explain the embedding using the example of a forum post, since both managers and students can create them.
- Open the forum.
- Click on "Add a new discussion topic".
- Write your contribution in the editor. At the point where you want the video to appear, click on the button with the video camera icon, "Insert or edit audio/video file".
- Select the "Video" tab in the new "Insert Media" window.
- Copy the link to the YouTube video that you want to embed. Paste this link into the "Video source URL" input field.
- Click on "Insert media".
- Click on "Save changes".
