How to: add video or multimedia

Wikis > Resources & help > Help: your blog > How to: add video or multimedia

Your blog posts can include videos and a whole range of multimedia files. They might be book trailers or short films you or students have produced, or media created by other people and available on sites such as YouTube.

Media sites like YouTube or animoto are made for sharing: they produce a little bit of code that allows you to insert (or embed) the video in your blog, so people can watch it there, rather than follow a link to another site.

Here are guides to help you embed items such as:

  • Images
  • YouTube videos
  • Slideshare or Prezi presentations
  • Animoto videos
  • Audio files.
This operates slightly differently in Edublogs and WordPress, so make sure you check the instructions that apply to your blog.
