Embed Audio/Video Tool

The Embed Audio/Video tool is a main body tool designed to work in conjunction with video services such as Eduvision, TeacherTube, YouTube, or SchoolTube to embed information on a page. If your district website will include a large amount of video, CMS4Schools recommends subscribing to EduVision which integrates with the Video Library

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