Embed Media Hosted Outside Moodle (using Media button)
The preferred way to embed media hosted outside of Moodle is to use the Media
button in Moodle's HTML Editor. Moodle will automatically display the video in a
media player. This method can be used for media hosted on Vimeo, YouTube, Ted
Talks, SlideShare, Issue, SoundCloud, Office 365 Video, or Sway.

1. Get the URL for the video from a supported service (Vimeo, YouTube, Ted
Talks, SlideShare, Issue, SoundCloud, Office 365 Video, or Sway).
o Go to the page on the website where the media is hosted and copy the
URL from your browser's location bar.
Note: Do not copy "embed" code, if provided.

2. In your Moodle course, click Turn editing on (green pencil icon , top
right), the edit links will appear. Add or Edit the activity or resource where the
embedded media will appear.

3. Click on the HTML editor entry box where you want the video to appear.
4. In the Editor toolbar, click the Media button ( ). The Insert media pop-up

will open.

5. In the Insert media pop-up:
- For Enter URL, select the Link tab and paste the address you copied in
Step 1.
- For Enter Name, enter a title for the video. Naming the video will also make
your content more accessible to students who are listening to your webpage
using screen reader software.

6. Click Insert media. The pop-up will close and you will be returned to the
Moodle editor.
Note: The embedded video will not display in the HTML editor—you will see
only a link, but after you save, the video will display embedded in your activity
or resource.

7. Important! The link to the media URL must be on its own line for the embed
to work. On your keyboard, press Enter/Return to create a new paragraph.

8. Add additional content to your entry (as needed).
9. By default, a video appears at 300 x 400 pixels to make the video

"responsive" so that the video resizes to fit the available space on any device.
In the text entry box, highlight the link you just added, then in the Editor
toolbar, click the Style button (ink drop icon in the middle of the toolbar) and
select </> Responsive video.
