To add your mp3 files stored in your preferable cloud storage service (like OneDrive, GoogleDrive, Dropbox etc) into your Course, all you have to do is:
1 Go to the course where you want to add the audio file and add a new Audio unit in the relevant section.
2Once your new Audio unit has been created click on the “Settings” button right next to it.
3On the new window that opens, simply paste the URL of your mp3 (please see screenshot below).
If you have uploaded your mp3 on Google Drive, simply copy the id of the shareable URL (the part that has random numbers and letters) and paste it at the end of this line:
For example, if this is the URL you copied from Google Drive https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BtWCGgzK-d0dBbG8yX2JjdFk/view?usp=sharing then this URL should be inserted in your school's learning activity:
If you have uploaded your mp3 on Dropbox, simply copy the shareable URL and paste it in the respective field. Note: You need to replace the "0" at the end of the URL with "1". For example, if this is the URL you copied from your Dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/s/ismx7sa8cokprwf/1%29%20Week%20%231%3A%20test.mp3?dl=0 the URL that should be inserted is this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ismx7sa8cokprwf/1%29%20Week%20%231%3A%20test.mp3?dl=1
In case the audio link does not play on mobile devices, make sure you replace the "www" with "dl". So if your URL is https://www.dropbox.com/s/ismx7sa8cokprwf/1%29%20Week%20%231%3A%20test.mp3?dl=1 you should change it to https://dl.dropbox.com/s/ismx7sa8cokprwf/1%29%20Week%20%231%3A%20test.mp3?dl=1 and the audio will play.
Remember to hit save! ;)
That’s, it! Let’s see now how will the audio file be displayed for your learners.
