Video Linking vs Video Embedding
From what I've noticed:
A. LINKING to a video seems to do this:
- puts an image taken from the video on the Rise page, along with a Play button
- results in smaller file sizes
- allows the learner to SKIP watching the video if they do not want to. (The Continue button cannot stop this.)
B. EMBEDDING a video seems to do this:
- puts a plain black box on the Rise page, along with a Play button
- results in larger file sizes
- lets the developer employ the Continue button to semi-force the learner to watch the video before moving on (I say semi-force because, ostensibly, a tech savvy learner could click Play and drag the playbar to the end of the video to quickly get the Continue button to show)
A few questions:
- With re to A, can anything be done to ensure the learner watches the video if linked?
- With re to B, can anything be done to NOT have a plain black box appear when embedding a video?
- Are there any ethical considerations to either option? I would attribute the video to the original creator of course...but wondering if there is anything else I need to do.
- Would putting the video in a Storyline block help either A or B?
