There can be some confusion about where your videos “live” once placed into a site and embedded into lessons. We recommend that if you plan on using the same or similar videos each term for the same course that you make a “Central Course Library” for your videos and use this each term for each course site. With this approach, you always know where to find your original video and can easily update any video without having to re-embed the video in your lessons tool of the site. This also makes checking the analytics for videos for all course sections at once a breeze!
In this lesson we show you how to create a central library for your course videos. We discuss how to embed videos from this library, update videos to newer versions, and check analytics for a specific date range.
Create a Central Library and Copy Videos from a Previous Course Site to the Library.
