Embed YouTube videos on a module page (Mashup tool)
YouTube videos can easily be embedded in VITAL module pages using the Mashup tool. For full details on using this facility please read the eLearning Unit 'How to' guide here. Quick steps follow below.

There are two ways in which you can access the Mashup tool.
1) From the Build Content menu, in the second column of the pop-up menu there is a Mashups area. Selecting the YouTube Video link accesses the YouTube search and embed facilities.

2) From any text editor box you will see on the third row of editing tools that the icon highlighted below contains the Mashup tool and clicking on this will access a pop-up menu with the YouTube videos link.

You can then either specify the resource if you know it already, or use the search facilities to find suitable content, preview it and then add it to your module.

You can also search for and embed Flickr and SlideShare content with this Mashup facility in VITAL.
