D2L - Adding Objects with Embed Code

Embed code can be used throughout D2L to add video, audio and a plethora of other learning objects

Adding Objects to D2L with Embed Code

  2. Login to D2L.

  4. Click into the Content Editor box.
  5. Click the Insert Stuff Button
    Insert Stuff button

  8. Click Next.

  10. The item will be entered into the discussion, news item, or piece of content.
    Note: You may not see anything, you may see an empty box, or a black box where the content should be.  This is to be expected.
