Course content enhanced with video, audio, and graphic materials not only engages students, but also allows you to address different learning styles of increasingly diverse student population. In addition, presenting content in multiple formats (text, video, audio, images etc.) helps students to better understand the concepts. For example, you can show students experiments in action to help them understand the theory or show a lecture of a world-known scientist to spark their interest in the subject.
D2L allows you to add media resources to your course in various course tools (News, Widgets, Discussions, etc.). You can add media resources to your D2L content in two ways:
1. Embed media from other websites
2. Upload a media file from your computer
Depending on the size and type of media, you can also upload images and videos using the Insert an Image or Insert Stuff buttons in the HTML text editor. It is recommended that large video files are hosted on external websites and then linked or embedded in D2L.
