There are many ways to help students get the most out of text. A great way to supplement student learning is to add media to assignments. To add media to a question or note in Actively Learn, you'll need to find the media's URL.
Right-click the image, and select "copy image address" to get the URL for the image
Simply copy the URL of videos and paste them into the "add media" field.
See below for an example:
Teachers can add videos and audio recordings stored on their Google drive using the share feature in Google drive.
- Select the video or audio file in Google drive, click on the kabob menu (3 vertical dot icon) and select the "share" feature.
- Click get shareable link
- Make sure anyone with this link is set to "can view"
