If you are required to submit a video file for an assignment, note that most video files are too large to post directly in Moodle. Instead, the file should be uploaded to a video sharing site such as YouTube, and then a link to the video can be posted in Moodle.
Accessing Your YouTube Account
If you have a personal Gmail account, you automatically have a YouTube account associated with it. Also, all SOU faculty, staff and students have a YouTube account as part of their SOU Gmail account. You can use either your SOU YouTube account or a personal account to post your videos. To access your YouTube account:
Note: If you go to the YouTube page without first logging into your SOU Gmail account, you can enter your SOU email address in the User name field, but you must leave the Password field blank. Click on Login to get to the SOU login page.
Uploading a Video
To post a video or to record one from your webcam, follow these instructions.
YouTube allows videos of up to 15 minutes in length. You can upload longer videos if you provide a phone number, as explained in this article.
Posting the Video in Moodle
Once a video has been posted to YouTube or other video hosting site, follow these instructions to post the link in Moodle.
