Embed your YouTube videos directly into your Eduflow course as a learning activity.

  1. When logged into Eduflow, and in the right course, click '+add New' to add the YouTube activity to your course

  2. Get your YouTube embed code (you can learn more about this below)

  3. Paste your YouTube embed code into your YouTube activity in Eduflow

  4. Decide if you want to use the 'standard view' or 'wide view'

  5. Set up any other relevant common activity settings, such as prerequisites, or an open date & deadline

Getting the embed code from YouTube

  1. Go to the YouTube video or playlist you want to embed.

  2. Click Share.

  3. From the list of Share options, click Embed.

  4. From the box that appears, copy the HTML code.

Paste the code in the YouTube activity on Eduflow. The code should look something like this:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="<>" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></ifram

Other video options:

  • Learners will have to mark the activity as complete themselves after watching the video. If you want to automatically complete the activity after learners watched 90%, you can upload your YouTube link with a Video activity instead.

  • You can also embed videos directly into the rich text editor. To do that, just paste the link to your YouTube video into a Content activity.
