Add Media to Moodle for Students

Instructors may ask students to create media files (audio or video) and submit them to an activity in Moodle. Because of the large size of some media files, we do not recommend submitting such files directly to Moodle. Instead, students should  upload media files to a sharing platform, then submit a link to the hosted media.

For media you do not mind making public, or sharing only with those who have the link, you can use an account on YouTube, Vimeo, Ted Talks, SlideShare, Issue, SoundCloud, Office 365 Video, Office Mix, or Sway. When you create a link to the URL of the page where media is hosted on these services, the media will be embedded and play on the page in Moodle.

To restrict sharing to UMass Amherst, you can upload media files to Apps at UMass Amherst Google Drive or Box. Note, however, that video, Google presentations, images, or audio that is stored on your Google Drive cannot be embedded on a Moodle page by students; you can submit a link that will open and play the media on Apps at UMass.

Clearing your browser’s cache may help to resolve problems such as trouble using drag-and-drop features, or trouble viewing the gradebook.

You may find it helpful to have more than one browser installed on your computer. If you run into problems using Moodle, moving to another browser may resolve your issues. You can also try moving to a different computer to see if the problem persists. This may help to discern whether your issue was a problem with your browser or computer, or with Moodle.
