Can I add a Vimeo video to my course?

You can add videos to your courses by embedding them from Vimeo. Videos are a great way to introduce ideas, give courses a visual aspect and break up large amounts of text.

To add a Vimeo video to your course you will need to find the embed code on Vimeo and use the embed feature in your Intuto course editor. There are two ways to find the embed code in Vimeo:

1. Finding the embed code on a video you have uploaded.

2. Finding the embed code on any other video.
