Embedding Content Using the Public Resources LTI

Blog Post created by awilliams Administrator on May 9, 2015

This tutorial will go over how to embed videos, lessons and other information, from sources such as YouTube, Quizlet, and Khan Academy into your course from the Public Resources LTI. While you can get an LTI for each of these sources individually, the Public Resources LTI is useful for grouping them in one place.

 

Start by going to the page you want to embed the information and get into Edit mode.

Now that we are in the Rich Content Editor, click on the "More External Tools" button, indicated by the blue “V”

Note: This only applies if you have several other LTI's in the Rich Text Editor. If not you will see the icon in the toolbar.

Next, in the drop down options that appear, select “Public Resources”

This brings up the options of content to embed which includes: YouTube, Vimeo, SchoolTube, Khan Academy, and Quizlet

 

Click on what client you would like to embed content from (For this tutorial we will use YouTube as an example.)

 

Now you are able to search for content that you would like to embed using the search bar

Once you have found the correct content, select the drop down Embed menu

 

This gives you a few different options for embedding the content

  • Return Link:   Provides a link back to the original site, with a small size video.
  • Embed Small:  Embeds a small video (320px by 240px)
  • Embed Medium:  Embeds a Medium video (640px by 480px)
  • Embed Large:  Embeds a Large video (800px by 600px)

 

Below is an example of what the Return Link and Embed Small content look like in the Rich Content Editor

Once you have the content where you like in the page click Save

 

Below is an example of what the Return Link and Small Embed look like after you have saved

Congrats! You have now embedded a YouTube video into your page.
