My student is saying that she cannot/does not have access to a few youtube videos and pdf files I've loaded into an assignment. I tried opening them via "student view" and had no problems. How can I make sure they are accessible?#
Hi Kim White-Mills...
I'm not sure when your student may have tried accessing the videos, but YouTube was down world-wide last evening for a while. Team YouTube (@TeamYouTube) | Twitter It sounds like things are online again, so has your student tried viewing the videos now? Also, it's entirely possible that the owner of a video could take down the video at any time...which would make the video unavailable.
As for the PDF files, are those files stored in your "Files" area of your course? Are you linking to the PDFs from your "Files" are of the course? Or, are you copying/pasting links from a different course into this one? If you're copying/pasting, that's not going to work for your students because your students don't have access to the course where you copied the links from.
I hope this is helpful information for you, Kim.
