Embed the YouTube video
- Locate the YouTube video and copy the URL. You do not need the embed code. The URL is sufficient.
- Now go back to your Brightspace course where you would like to place the video. If you don’t already have a module created in your Content area, follow these instructions to create a module.
- In your module, choose to Upload/Create then Video or Audio.
- A pop-up window will open where you can paste the URL you copied. The video title and a preview will automatically appear. Edit the title if needed. Click Save.
You should now see the YouTube player embedded in your content module.
