Add a video to a course

Add a video from your computer

See Add a document from your computer.

You can upload videos without size limit. Bear in mind, however, that the bigger the video, the longer the upload and conversion time.

If the video size exceeds 400 MB, we suggest splitting it into several parts, or upload it to an external platform (YouTube, Google Drive, Vimeo, etc.).

    • .wmv
    • .vob
    • .mts
    • .mpg
    • .mpeg
    • .mkv
    • .m2ts
    • .flv
    • .3gp
    • .mp4
    • .webm
    • .mov
    • .m4v
    • .3gpp
    • .m2t
    • .avi

If your video is in another format, we suggest compressing it in the .zip format before uploading it. Learners will not be able to play it from the platform, but will be able to download it.
