Adding a video or audio to a page to course

Adding a video or audio file to a Moodle course works much like adding URLs. You may add them as files or URLs, however, if your media file is rather short (under 100 MB), you may drag the file directly to the module of your choice.  

Follow the steps in this article to add video to your course:

NOTE: Do not forget to turn your editing on when doing this, as you are making modifications to your course.

If your video file needs to be reduced to upload to Moodle

McNeese's Moodle site has a file upload limit of 100MB.  This is because there is an additional cost to McNeese to support large data files on the site. In addition, reducing the file size is helpful for students needing files that are easily accessible from a mobile device.  Compressed video files are great for students using a tablet or phone in online classes. 

 There are several tools that faculty members and students are using to reduce file sizes quickly and inexpensively. For video files, I recommend Movavi which has a lifetime license and a one-year license.  Several faculty members are using Movavi to compress course videos and convert the files to mobile-friendly MP4 formats.  

There is a Mac and a Window version and this program can convert very large files in a few seconds to a compressed 100MB MP4 file:

The eLearning department can also assist with compressing the videos if you do not want to purchase a license.
