Integrating Library Resources into Elearning

Embedding Videos in Elearning

All videos in collections licensed by WMU can be used in Elearning, presentations, and other instructional webpages. Remote (off campus) use of licensed resources requires users to be authenticated into the resource site. WMU manages authentication with a proxy server. You may need to incorporate this proxy server prefix ( into URLs you embed.

If you are an instructor, follow the link below to get step-by-step instructions for embedding videos from library collections into your Elearning course.
