You may also choose to embed media, such as videos, into the course homepage. It is suggested you avoid doing this unless you are using the tabbed course format, as otherwise, the video will appear as part of a long, scrolling page. You should certainly avoid more than 1 video per page. If you are using another course format you should consider embedding the video into a page, book or lesson instead.

Who can use it?


Consider whether you want to add the content to the course homepage, or whether you would be better placing the content within a pagebook or lesson instead to keep the course homepage free of clutter.


If you are using a tabbed course format you might embed a video into a label within a tab (course section). However, avoid placing more than one video onto a single Moodle page, as it will make it difficult for students to navigate and will clutter the page. Consider using a book (which has multiple pages) instead.
