Embedding Media in BeachBoard

BeachBoard's HTML Editor allows you to embed media content media, such as videos, for students to see without having to download it or open a new page. Embedding videos is possible anywhere you see a text box, except text boxes that appear while taking a quiz (unless your instructor has enabled the HTML editor in Long Answer questions only). 

How to Embed Media Content

In any text box that has the HTML editor, you will be able to insert a video using the following steps.

  1. In the HTML Editor, click the Insert Stuff button from the toolbar in the HTML Editor.
