Adding a video message or instruction to an article or assignment activity really brings life to the learner experience. Making a video from your computer to include in your teaching articles and assignment instructions is simple.
The camera app records the video image and audio as a video file.
Now either upload the video file as an upload activity or add it to your Youtube channel and embed the link.
The video will then be uploaded to your channel. Be sure to mark it as Unlisted so that it will not be discoverable by browsing YouTubers.
You are now ready to copy the video's URL or share code and paste it as an Embed Media from External Sites video in any text area. See the How to add video to articles & text areas lesson.
An alternative to creating your video on your computer, is to create your video directly on Youtube. Click here to find out how.
Make your videos short and focussed. It's a better user experience to view multiple short videos than one longer video.
