Can I add a Youtube video to my course?

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

To add a Youtube video to your course you will need to find the embed code on Youtube and use the embed feature in your Intuto course editor.
