Inserting a YouTube video in your PowerPoint presentation
**Please note that you will need to have the Adobe Shockwave installed in order to be able to add
.swf files to your PowerPoint presentation. The Adobe Shockwave installer can be found here: Additionally, this method is only linking the video (in other
words, you need to have an internet connection to view the video). We are using this method in
compliance with copyright ethics.

1. First, make sure that the Developer tab is visible in the ribbon. To do this, select the Office
Button in the top left corner of the PowerPoint window and then click on Power Point Options.

2. In the Power Point Options, make sure that Show developer tab in ribbon is checked.

3. Create a blank slide.
4. In the ribbon, go to the Developer tab and select More


5. Then select Shockwave Flash Object

4. Once you have selected the Shockwave Flash Object, your cursor will change to a crosshair
(+); left-click to draw a box inside the slide.

5. Right click the box that you just drew and go to Properties.
6. In Properties, you will see a line called Movie. This is where you will enter the URL for the
movie that you would like to link to your PowerPoint presentation. But, before we do anything
here, we will locate the URL for the movie we are using.

7. Choose your YouTube video. Copy the URL shown here:
8. Going back to the PowerPoint, open the Flash Properties box (refer to # 5), and paste your
URL into the Movie field.

9. But Wait! This link will not work until we make a minor change. We need to remove
“watch?v=“ and replace it with “v/” as in this example:

10. Close out of Properties and Save your project.

11. On the main menu, go to the View tab and select Slide Show to see your finished product.

Inserting a YouTube video in your Moodle course
There are several ways to incorporate YouTube in your Moodle course site.
This is one example:

1. Select the YouTube video you would like to embed.

2. Copy the code from the Embed field (to the right of the video window) by selecting all the
code and then click Ctrl+C (or Command+C for Mac).

3. Open your Moodle course.

4. Turn editing on.

5. You can use the Add a resource drop down menu to choose what you would like to build. In
this example, I will choose Insert a Label.

6. Toggle the HTML source button on the toolbar (the < > icon). This will take you into HTML
7. Paste the code you have previously copied from Youtube into this box (Ctrl+V (Win)/
Command+V (Mac)).

8. Click on save to return to course. You should see the embedded video on course page
(please see example below).
