Adding Multimedia Content to the Page

NOTE: resources and multimedia are similar. Both can be either files or URLs. The difference is that resources appear as links in your Lessons page, whereas multimedia is displayed in a box on the page, if the student's browser is able to do this.

Add Multimedia

The multimedia option allows you to upload media files (such as videos and songs), and present them directly on the page. The Multimedia option can also double as a Web Content tool, allowing you to link to and display websites in your Lessons page.

Click the Add Multimedia button at the top of the page.

You can add a multimedia file to your page by:

In many cases, you will need to adjust the size of the box in which the content is shown. Use the Edit button, as explained below.

Edit Multimedia

To edit your multimedia content, first click Edit to the left of the item you would like to modify.

This will open up an Edit Item box on your screen. The options available for modification are as follows:

To save your changes, click Update Item. To remove the multimedia item from your Lessons page, click Delete.

Delete a Resource

Click Edit to the left of the resource you would like to remove, then click Delete.

The delete function in Lessons only removes the link on the Lessons page. If you would like to completely delete an uploaded file from your worksite, the file will also need to be removed from the Resources tool. To do this, click Resources on the left menu and click on the folder that has the same title as the Lessons from which the file was removed. Click Actions --> Remove to the right of the file. Click Remove to complete the process.
