In LearnWorlds you can directly upload a video file and use it in your courses (following this article).

Alternatively, you can include a video that is already stored on Vimeo.com or Wistia.com


Let's see all the available options :)


1 In the course page, click on "Contents".

2Under the section in which you want to upload video click "Add an activity".

3Make sure you are on the "Multimedia" tab and then click on the Video Button.

4Then, insert the “Title” and push the "Save" button.

5After you are done, hover on the right side of the learning unit and click on the "Settings" button.

6 Then, a side window will open and there you will have to choose whether you will add a video from the course library, Vimeo, Wistia or from all the videos of your school.


From the course video library


Select a video uploaded in this course's video library.


aAfter all the videos have been successfully uploaded on your video library, you can turn to your course authoring page whenever you wish and choose to upload any video you prefer. Add a video learning unit to your course and then select the "Course video library" option.


bFrom the dropdown list, select one of the videos you have uploaded to your library and give a title to your video unit.


cJust click "Save" to finalize the whole process.


You are done!


From Vimeo


Another choice for video adding is to include a video that is stored on Vimeo.com. The procedure is pretty much the same as before:


aAdd a video learning unit to your course and again on the window that has poped up, select “Vimeo” and then paste the "vimeo id" of the video you want to upload.


The “Vimeo id” must look like this:


bThen click "Save".


cLearners will also be able to see the duration of the video.


Well done! You have uploaded your first Vimeo video.


From Wistia


An alternative choice for video adding is to include a video that is stored on Wistia.com. The procedure is described in the following steps:



a Add a video learning unit to your course and again on the window that has popped up, select “Wistia” and then paste the "wistia id" of the video you want to upload



The “Wistia id” must look like this:



b Then click "Save"


c The duration of the video will be visible to your Learners in this case as well. 


From all the videos of your school


The fourth choice for adding a video as a learning activity is to select to display a list of all the videos in your school and pick whichever you prefer. In this way, you can reuse a video that you have already added in another course. The first steps are again the same.


aAdd a video learning unit to your course and hover your mouse over the new video title and click "Settings”. The usual form will appear and the only thing you have to do is choose the source of your video, selecting “From all school video”. Then choose the course where the video is contained by clicking the grey cross.


bThe list of contained videos in the specific course will appear. Tick the box of the video you wish to reuse and click “Save”.


cNow you will see the duration of the video next to the title of your Video Learning Unit. 

Just save and keep adding!

Well done! You have now created your first video learning unit..
