Uploading a video for your online course

If you have videos that you wish to share with your students, you can place it in the LMS in two ways:

Option 1: By uploading the video as a File, provided that the video is among the acceptable file formats and within the site upload limit set by the system administrator; or

Option 2: By uploading the video on YouTube and sharing the URL on your course page.

We strongly recommend the second option since YouTube, being a video sharing platform has the capability to automatically set the video quality depending on the individual viewer's Internet connection which allows it to load well on slower connections and older devices.

If you are concerned about your video being available to the public, you can set it as Unlisted on YouTube so that only those with direct access to the link can view it. This will also prevent your video from appearing in search results.
