Embedding Media Content in BeachBoard

BeachBoards HTML Editor allows you to embed media content media, such as videos, for students to see without having to download it or open a new page. Embedding videos is possible anywhere you see a text box, except text boxes that appear while taking a quiz (unless your instructor has enabled the HTML editor in Long Answer questions only).
