Quickly embed a video from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, Loom, or the video-hosting service of your choice by entering the video URL (or full embed code). We'll make sure the video is embedded responsively (so that it automatically resizes on any screen) when you embed from the URL.

Sample Video Embed: learner preview mode on left and design mode on right

Q. My third-party embeds aren't loading correctly. What can I do?

Q. Can I embed using SCORM?

A. We are currently unable to export to or import from SCORM. We've been looking into the new Tin Can version of SCORM since it is a better, more future-oriented version, but we don't have a timeline for implementing it.
