How do I share a video I have on my Google Drive in my course?

To share a video that is on another website, you can either post a link or embed the video onto the page.

If you post a link, people can click on it and be sent to the video.

If you embed the video, they can see and play see the video on the page they are on.

Getting the embed code from Google.

  1. In your Google Drive, single-click on the video you want to share then click on the Get shareable link icon.

  2. Double click on the video you want to share. It will play in full window mode.
  3. Click on the More actions icon, it looks like three dots, and then select Open in new window.

  4. Click on the More actions icon again, and then select Embed item.
