YuJa Media

Adding Media Content in iLearn

You can link to your videos within the Content tool; connecting students to course materials in one location allows them to move through the course easily. This option also gives you the ability to setup Release Conditions that require a student to view the video prior to accessing other tools, like an assignment, discussion or quiz.

You can create a link through the Existing Activities option or create a file with a video embedded. Using the embedded video, you can add other content or resources associated to the video in the same page. Check out our site for information about using HTML templates in your course.

Using the HTML Editor

You can publish media in any tool that has the HTML editor visible to type information into. Students can use this option also in any of the tools where they have the HTML editor (Discussions, Assignments, and certain quiz questions.)
