Q. How can I add my video with the NILE Text Editor?


To upload video with the Text Editor, please DO NOT use the video icon in the text editor highlighted below. This method does not allow users to view the video in the browser, instead use the instructions that follow so that your video plays within your post / assessment.

Users should not click the video icon highlighted to import video into NILE.

To upload a video using the Text Editor - eg Discussion board, Blog/Journal, Feedback area or Assessment.
  1. In the Text Editor, look for the option titled 'Mashups' in the third line of the text editor options. Click this and select 'Kaltura Media'. (If you only see one row of options click the downward arrows on the right-hand side to show more options.)

  2. In the Kaltura Media window click 'Add New' > 'Media Upload' > Choose a file to upload.

  3. Name the file, and add a description. Then click 'Back to Browse and embed' then 'Select'.

  4. Your video will show as a yellow box.

  5. Click 'Submit'.
