First, you need to decide where you want to place your video in the course. In Moodle content can be embedded or linked anywhere that is edited using the Moodle editor e.g. a pagelabelquiz questionHTML (Free Text) blockcourse description etc. You should avoid embedding videos on the Moodle course homepage unless you are using tabs format and you have a single introductory video. Use a page instead to keep the main Moodle course page clutter free. For multiple videos use a book so students can focus on one at a time.


You will need to decide where the video will appear in Moodle. It is usually a good idea to put videos into a separate page or Moodle book (which has multiple pages) rather than directly on the course homepage, as otherwise, students will see the video every time they visit the page. If you are using the Moodle tabs format then embedding a welcome video into a 'Welcome' tab that students will only visit at the start of their module may be a good option too. Just keep in mind when students will access the video and where you can place it to make it easy to access, without cluttering the Moodle course.
