Embed Audio/Video Tool

The Embed Audio/Video tool is designed to work in conjunction with video services such as TeacherTube, YouTube, or SchoolTube.  If your district website will include a large amount of video, CMS4Schools recommends subscribing to a service such as EduVision.  Check out EduVision on our support site for more information.

Note: You can also use the Embed Audio/Video tool to embed where you have been provided an embed code (ex. google maps location).
