Embed Media in a Page or Other Tools

Though the Course Media gallery can share all course media with students, embedding videos in specific areas like Modules, assignments, or Announcements is common. Typically, you embed videos on a Page and then position the Page within the Module for easy access.

  1. Create or Edit a Page: Go to Pages and create a new page or edit an existing one.
  2. Position the Cursor and Embed Media: Position your cursor where you want to embed the video. On the Rich Content Editor’s toolbar, click the Embed My Media button or the apps tool (plug) and and select Embed My Media. 
    Embed My Media button and Plug button 
  3. Choose Media to Embed: Scroll through your My Media listings until you find the entry you wish to embed. Click Embed, or choose the desired size under the Settings (gear) button, and then choose Embed.
  4. Save the Page: Continue editing the page and click Save & Publish or Save.
  5. Add the Page to a Module: Open the Module where you want to add the Page, and press the + (Add) button to add the Page. Drag or move the Page to a suitable location within the module.
  6. View the Video with Captions and Transcript: When users view the video, they will see the overlaid captions and the full transcript below the video window. Users can search for and click on any word in the transcript to instantly move the play head to that time on the video timeline.

You can use the same method to embed My Media videos in assignment or quiz instructions, discussion posts, etc., with the Rich Content Editor.
