Moodle Tutorials: Embedding YouTube Videos


Embedding YouTube Videos


Moodle allows you to embed a video housed on an external video-sharing site, like YouTube, anywhere you have a Content Editing block. We recommend using the Page resource for embedding videos as it saves space on your course front page and makes it less cluttered. To get there click (1.) Add an Activity or Resource located at the bottom of each block week. (2.) Scroll down to and click Page. (3.) Click Add




Copy the YouTube link/URL and paste it into the box labeled Content:



Select the URL and make it a hyperlink:



In the pop-up window, confirm that the YouTube link/URL appears in the first field. If not, paste it in. Then click Create link:



Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save and display:


Your YouTube video will be embedded in your Moodle page:
