Assignment: Adding YouTube Links

Assignments can only accept files smaller than 20MB. If your instructor has asked you to create a video/presentation it is likely going to be too large to be submitted as a file. Instead you can upload your video to Youtube and then submit the link to the Assignment.

Submitting a YouTube Video

  1. Locate the Assignment in your course and click on the Assignment name.

The box on the right will display your submission and grading status. Verify you are submitting to the correct assignment before proceeding.
