How do I share a video in my ePortfolio?

Updated

You may want to add a video to a presentation in your ePortfolio. There are two methods for this:

1. Adding a MP4 file.
When someone wants to view or review the video, he clicks on the link and downloads the document to the computer. The video can then be viewed on the computer. This method has two disadvantages:

  • Many (possibly large) files are downloaded to the computer.
  • Files are always downloaded to an external device. The person who has shared the file no longer has control over its distribution.

2. Uploading a video to YouTube as unlisted.
Then the video can only be viewed by someone with the right link. This link can then be added to a presentation.

Adding a MP4 file

  1. Go to the My Items tab.
  2. Click Add.
  3. Click File Upload.
  1. Click My Computer.
  1. Click Upload and look for the file in your explorer.
  2. Click Add.

1. Click Next.

  1. Click Save.

Click Save and Close.
The video can now be found under the My Items tab. The document can now be added as an artifact to a presentation.

Go to www.youtube.com in your browser.

  1. Click the camera icon with the plus in it (Create a video or post).
  2. Click Upload video.

Make sure you have or create a YouTube account.
