Videos on webpages

We are just beginning Unit 2, but some of my students want to embed video. Is this something they will be able to do? Are there any limits?

I’m not sure about limits, but I generally teach students about finding embed code from the videos they’d like to include. We then spend a little time looking carefully at the embed code to see what we can recognize from what we’ve learned about including images. It usually starts with an iframe tag of some kind.

If the student has the video link, in the html body add / modify code using:

< video width=“800” height=“600” controls >
< source src=“http://actualvideolink.mp4” type=“video/mp4” >
< source src=“mov_bbb.ogg” type=“video/ogg” >
< /video >


FYI…if you have them publish their website, they should be compliant with policy and law for the visually impaired. Videos have to have a transcript to be compliant. I have told mine that we are not getting that deep. If you would like to insert a link to an external website with a video they can, but they are not putting videos on their websites.
