As an instructor, you can edit the details of a video or audio file in your course and add tags.

Details include the title and description of the media. Descriptions do not appear anywhere in Arc, but the content in the description is used to locate media when users search for them.

Tags help organize media and also act as search terms to help users find a relevant media.

Note: You cannot add details and tags unless the media was embedded with comments.
