Add custom code to your page
Many third party services such as YouTube™ or TeacherTube® provide embed code for objects like videos that are posted on their sites. This code normally includes code for a player as well. You can use this code to insert or embed the video and its player onto a page in your site. This is helpful for creating assignments where the students are required to answer questions while viewing a video. You can embed the video on your page so the students can complete the assignment without ever navigating away from the site.
