How do I embed a video from a computer on a lesson page?

Instructors can add an embedded video to a lesson page. The embedded video described here is a video uploaded from the instructor's computer to the Lessons page. See How do I embed a YouTube video or other web video on a lesson page? for directions on embedding a YouTube video.

Accessing the Lessons tool

Accessing the Lessons tool

To access the Lessons tool, select the Lessons link in the tools menu.  

Instructors using multiple instances of the tool in a single course site may wish to rename the instances to avoid confusion. Also, the tool may appear with another name if site templates are used to create course sites. In the Activities Grid template, the tool is named the Activities tool; in the SCPS template, the tool is named the Class Activities tool; and in the Activities Menu template, multiple instances of the tool are automatically added, each named for a week in the course. All of these names may be changed according to instructor preferences.  

The default page of each instance of the tool contains text that provides more information on the tool and its use.
