How do I Put a YouTube Video in a Module?

Here are instructions on how to put a YouTube video as a content item in your modules:
 
Go to the YouTube video to get the “embed” code. First click on Share and choose Embed.

This will open a pop-up where you can get the code. Just copy the text code – you will need it in a minute. You will also notice that in this window YouTube gives you some nice options, like where the video should start.

 
note: embed codes will start and end with < >, so make sure you get all of it!

Now go back to your Brightspace course where you would like to place the video. I’ll show you how to put it in a content module.

 
In your chosen module, choose to Upload/Create a Video or Audio file.

This will open a pop-up window where you can paste that YouTube embed code that you copied earlier. It will give you a preview below that should look like a YouTube player.

Click Save and you are done. Now when students see this in the content module, it will immediately open a player right in Brightspace.
