Embedding Content Into Your myLesley Course

Modified on Thu, 27 May 2021 at 12:44 PM

Please note that students are currently unable to embed content in myLesley. This is a known issue with Blackboard. In the meantime, students will need to share a link to their content (ex VoiceThread).

You may embed HTML content in myLesley anywhere where you see the content/text editor. To do so:

Locate the HTML button.


This will open the Source Code View. Paste your code into the code view window and click Save.

paste your html code, such as an iframe

This will bring you back to the content editor. Your embedded content will be visible. Click Submit to save your changes.

Please note that in order for your embedded content to play in myLesley you may need to change any http in your code to https. This will ensure that it will play inside myLesley's secure connection.

For example the following embed code will NOT play correctly in myLesley: 

<iframe width="480" height="270" src="http://voicethread.com/app/player/?threadId=2659997" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Instead, you mush change the http in the code to https:

<iframe width="480" height="270" src="https://voicethread.com/app/player/?threadId=2659997" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


Due to security restrictions in Chrome, microphone and webcam permissions may not function correctly with embedded media. Instead, you will be prompted to open the item in a new tab in order to record audio/video (ex VoiceThread comments).
