If you selected Embed Video URL you'll need to paste the video URL in the box pictured below and click the OK button to save.

IMPORTANT - YouTube and Vimeo Settings

Regarding Vimeo:

  • If the video is password-protected, the user will need to know the password.

  • Click HERE for instructions on how to change video privacy settings.

  • Click HERE for instructions on how to change video embed settings.

Regarding YouTube:

  • Embedding needs to be enabled.

  • If the video is private it may be unable (unauthorized) to be embedded and/or it may NOT play in the LMS. Might get an error when trying to embed.

  • Having the video in “Unlisted” state is a better option.

  • Click HERE for instructions on how to change video privacy settings for YouTube.

  • Click HERE for instructions on how to enable embedding. Please note: embedding is enabled by default.

The following instructions are specific to Uploading Images & Documents:

When uploading documents and/or images, you'll need to click the Upload Files button pictured below.

You'll then see the upload interface pictured below. Here you can drag and drop the documents/images you could like to upload or you can click the + sign (centered in the photo below) to browse your computer.

Images and documents can also be imported from the list of services featured to the left in the image below. Some of these services include: Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Flickr, Google Photos and gmail.

Once you have selected a file, click the Upload button.

Manage your Learning Objects

On the same page where you upload your videos and documents, you can also manage your Learning Objects (see picture below). You can edit, delete and/or add your learning objects to a course.

Once all your Learning Objects are uploaded into the Learning Management System, you can now set up your course. Refer to Creating & Editing a Course for more information.

Important Additional Information

Definition of Embed in regards to YouTube and Vimeo - When you view a video on social media, often times you'll see an option to share the video. One way to share the video is to embed the video elsewhere. Youtube and Vimeo will offer a short piece of code that you can use to put into other pages.

Embed Video URL Privacy Settings
When using Upload/Embed Video Lectures and then selecting Embed Video URL, the Learning Management System (LMS) will retain any and all privacy settings that you have set on Vimeo or YouTube. This will ensure that videos that you have set as private will remain private.
