How to Embed a Video, Presentation or Web Page into a Course Page  

Just like with a real classroom, it's important to keep student inside the e-classroom. Placing a link in a course that launches a student out to the wild of the Internet is just as distracting as sending the students down the hall to read a newpaper article on the wall or to find a book in some random location around the school. You don't do that in a real classroom, so you probably don't want to do that in an e-classroom, either.

Embedded videos, presentations or other web pages into a 30hands Course Page is like bringing the content and the Internet into the classroom. It makes for a more cohesive, structured and focused learning environment. 

30hands makes it easy to embed links. Here's how to do it.

How to Embed a YouTube Video into a 30hands Course
  1. First, go to YouTube and find the video you want.
  2. Select the URL from the browser location or from the YouTube sharing function. You may be able to copy the URL by right-clicking on the video.
  3. Next, create a Page in your course.
  4. On the Rich Text field of the Page, click the Filmstrip icon and paste the URL that you just copied. Click OK.
  5. This will put an "iframe" into the body of the Rich Text field. The "iframe" will change to an embedded video after saving the page.
  6. If you want to type text before or after the video on the page, you can easily do that by putting a carriage return before or after the "iframe".
  7. When done, save the page by clicking the button at the bottom.
  8. Click "View Page" to see the embedded video.
How to Embed a Web Page or Wikipage into a 30hands Course
  1. First, go to web page or wikipage you want to include in the course.
  2. Select the URL from the browser location. If it is a wikipage, you can click the "Print" link on the lower left side to present a printer friendly view of the page. This is usually better to embed, since it does not include distracting navigators around the page.
  3. Next, create a Page in your course.
  4. On the Rich Text field of the Page, click the Filmstrip icon and paste the URL that you just copied. Click OK.
  5. This will put an "iframe" into the body of the Rich Text field. The "iframe" will change to an embedded video after saving the page.
  6. If you want to type text before or after the video on the page, you can easily do that by putting a carriage return before or after the "iframe".
  7. When done, save the page by clicking the button at the bottom.
  8. Click "View Page" to see the embedded video.
How to Get a 30hands Mobile Video into a 30hands Course

When using the 30hands Mobile app, if you publish your video to 30hands, you will be able to put it into a course.
Follow these steps:
  1. First, go to the 30hands Mobile presentation on the web. It will show up on your User Profile. 
  2. Click the "Download Original" link on the presentation and copy the URL.                                                     
  3. Next, create a Page in your 30hands course.
  4. On the Rich Text field of the Page, click the Filmstrip icon and paste the URL that you just copied. Click OK. 
  5. This will put an "iframe" into the body of the Rich Text field. The "iframe" will change to an embedded video after saving the page.
  6. If you want to type text before or after the video on the page, you can easily do that by putting a carriage return before or after the "iframe".
  7. When done, save the page by clicking the button at the bottom.
  8. Click "View Page" to see the embedded video.
