Video has many uses in online and hybrid teaching and learning, including content capture, demonstrations of processes, and quick updates and recaps about the course provided by the instructor. If you wish to integrate video into your Moodle site, embedding rather than linking offers many advantages. An embedded video can be part of a sequenced module that includes other activities, resources and assessments. Because the video is embedded rather than uploaded into your site, exceeding storage limitations is not a concern.
Moodle offers options for embedding video processed through YouTube, MediaMill or Kaltura.
YouTube offers additional features that may be useful, including:
faster load times
automatic embedding through links
the ability to adjust the size of the video
starting a video at a specific moment
modifying the look of the player
embedding video playlists (a collection of videos)
