Integrating YouTube videos (v2.7+)

Why integrate YouTube?

YouTube ( can be useful in the classroom or for showcasing your school's culture. You can link to external YouTube videos using the Resources/Links module, or embed (display) YouTube videos directly on your website page/s using the Embed module. We recommend embedding videos as this gives you more control over hiding YouTube advertising, links and comments, keeping things relevant for users and suitable for students.

  1. Go to YouTube ( and locate for the video you wish to embed.

  2. Select "Share" (beneath the video).


  3. Select "Embed".


  4. We recommend the disabling the "Show suggested videos when the video finishes" option, (it can present links to videos that may be irrelevant or unsuitable).


  5. Select "copy".
