About embed videos

Embedding videos within a resource ensures that students can access the relevant video content as they need it. It also provides a more integrated navigation experience as students can review text and video content within the same resource without having to navigate back to the module homepage. You can use the text editor to embed external content into a Moodle resource or activity.

The text editor is used to create the following content types in Moodle:

  • Label
  • Page
  • Book

The text editor is also available from the Description field of activities or resources and within Quiz questions.
