Learn@UW - Students can Only Link to External Media Objects using the 'Insert Stuff' Button in HTML Editor
Students can use the 'Insert Stuff' button ( ) in the HTML editor to link to a media object on the web or from their ePortfolio, if they have one: for example, a YouTube video. They cannot insert a media object by uploading a file from their machine.
The restrictions are by design to prevent students from viewing other student's videos.
The tools available to students that provide access to the HTML editor include Discussions posts and Blog posts.
