Tools for Instructors: Add Streaming Video to Your Course

Embed Video in Moodle

The Oviatt Library subscribes to many streaming video databases. To embed a link to a video in one of our databases just look for a "permalink" or  "persistent URL" or "title URL." To use the embedded code for viewing within Moodle look for a link to the embed code and copy and paste in Moodle. Please note: if you try to embed the video in Moodle and you get a blank screen, this is because of a security setting in the browser, just click on the shield symbol in the address bar and allow the unsecure content to be displayed.
