Use the File Picker to embed content into Moodle

There are many ways to embed Media into Moodle using the MediaCore File picker. Below is just one such method:
  • Start by navigating to your course page and "turn editing on".
  • Click on "Add an Activity or Resource".
  • In the TinyMCE enter the wording you'd like to appear in the link highlight it with your cursor. Next, click on the link icon in the toolbar.
  • A window will pop-up. Click on the square image on the right side to launch the File picker.

  • In the File picker click on "MediaCore search", enter the content you are looking for in the search bar, and click the "Search" button.

  • A list of Media that matches your search will appear in the window.
  • Click on the video you would like to use and click "Select this file".

  • To embed this video into your course page, click "Insert".

  • The embedded video will appear in the Moodle edit window as a link.
  • From here enter a subject, message and click "post to forum" or "save and display" to post the video to your course page.
