Adding Links to Specific Tegrity Videos in Moodle

Posted May 22nd, 2017 at 3:35 pm.

Clicking on the Tegrity Campus link in a the McGraw-Hill AAIRS block within a Moodle course, takes you to a Tegrity page listing all of the recordings associated with that course, as show below.

… brings you here.

But what if you want to direct viewers to a specific recording in that list?

Every recording in Tegrity has a share link, which you can embed or paste into a Moodle site, an email, or a website just as you would for a YouTube video or other web link you wanted to share.

  • To get this link, go to your Tegrity Course page, select the recording by checking its box in the right column, and choose Share Recording from the drop-down recording menu. Copy the URL provided as shown below.

One of the most flexible ways to add this link to your Moodle site uses the Label feature. A Moodle label is a block of HTML added to the bottom of a topic block like a file resource or an activity.

  • In Moodle, Turn Editing On, then click Add an activity or resource at the bottom of the block where you wish to add your video link.

  • Scroll down to Resources, select Label, and click Add.

  • In the text editor window, click the Media button (shown below).

You have three options for adding media: Link (which creates a link to the audio or video file), Video, and Audio (which load the file into a video or audio player embedded in the page). We’ve had the most luck adding Tegrity recordings as Links, so that is what we recommend here.

  • Click on the Link tab.
  • Paste the URL for your Tegrity recording into the Source URL box. 
  • If you’d like, type a name for the link that tells students what it is (for example, “Week 1 Lecture Video”).

Paste URL for recording into Source URL box

  • Click Insert Media.
