Capture and Insert Media in Moodle

To capture media and then insert it, go to the desired area within Moodle (e.g. create discussion post, news post, or assignment).

  1. Within the text editor, click the Warpwire icon (Fig. 1). This will allow you to choose and insert content directly into the editor. Pasting the Embed or Script HTML code into a rich text editor may not work.
