Professor: Embedding Videos in Questions & Discussions (Old Top Hat)
Questions and Discussions on Top Hat can have YouTube videos & Vimeo videos embedded within them. In order to embed a YouTube clip, simply copy the code that appears after v= in the URL of the youtube clip & paste it in square brackets after the word youtube in the question or discussion. For example: youtube[9f06QZCVUHg].
When asking the question, the video will then appear within it:
Students will also have the embedded video on their screen, which makes it highly useful, especially for homework questions.
Videos can also be embedded in discussions in the same way. Students even have the ability to embed videos in their responses to discussions:
‘Vimeo videos can also be embedded in Questions & Discussions. Simply copy the code that appears after v vimeo.com/ in the URL of the vimeo clip & paste it in square brackets after the word vimeo in the question or discussion. For example: vimeo.
This will embed the Vimeo clip right in the Question or discussion, in the same way as a YouTube clip.
