How do I link to a YouTube video in the Rich Content Editor?

YouTube videos are automatically embedded in any feature that uses the Rich Content Editor. This lesson applies to the Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Pages, Quizzes, and Syllabus features.

There are three different ways to link a YouTube video, depending on what you want it to look like:

  1. Insert Link into the Rich Content Editor (full link with embedded video)
  2. Insert Link with the Chain Icon (shortened link with optional embedded video)
  3. Hyperlink existing text (selected text becomes the link)
