There are many instances that require a Youtube video to be added to your Moodle website. Moodle has the HTML feature that allows different HTML scripts to be placed on the site. This is where a Youtube video can be inserted. This article will explain how to insert an Youtube video in the Moodle 2.3 Frontpage.

Inserting a Youtube video

  1. Log into the Moodle Dashboard

    Important! Keep in mind that Editing must be turned on in the Settings section in order to edit any of these options.
