Video Note

Video Note is available to you as a lecturer everywhere that an HTML editor appears (Announcements, Content - when Creating a File, and in topic and module Descriptions, Discussions, Assignments, Quizzes etc).

Once you have created a Video Note you will be able to locate and reuse it anywhere in MyLO using Video Note Search. (You will only have access to your own Video Notes)
