When you are creating instructions for your learners, you might have a need to provide a video to support their understanding. You are able to either upload a video or to link to a video streaming service outside of Practera such as YouTube or Vimeo. When you add a video to your instructions, it will display for learners and experts at the top of the page, above the text content.
Uploading my own video
If you'd like to upload a video of your own, select Choose on the top right beside Lead Video:
You will then open up the Media Manager in which you can upload the video of your choice!
Linking to a video
To use a video from a streaming platform, you will need to input the URL for the video in the text box below the lead video image:
When selecting a video from a streaming source, please ensure that it is publicly available (not a private video) and that you have the rights to use that video.
There may be some additional information or documents that your learners or experts will need. Adding an attachment to the instructions is really quick and simple! Below Lead Video you will see Attached Files. Select Choose in order to open the media manager and upload or select the file you would like to attach:
You can attach more than one file and you can attach files of any kind!
When you're writing instructions, you'll more than likely find the need to add in imagery to support your words. Inserting an image to the instructions using the text editor allows you to add the image to any part of your instructions!
Move your cursor to where you would like to insert the image and select the Picture button from the text editor menu:
Next, you'll see an upload option to either Select from Files or to provide an Image URL. Here you can upload a file from your computer or provide a link to an image that exists on the web.
Make sure you have permission to use share or use the image that you have selected.
Click Insert Image.

You image is in! You can resize the image in the instructions by dragging and resizing from the bottom right corner of the image:
