Adding Video to VIULearn

We strongly recommend against uploading video directly into VIULearn. Having large files, such as videos, loaded directly in your course may cause the course to load slowly for you and your learners. In addition, VIULearn is not able to offer different players depending on the device you use to watch the video. YouTube and VIUTube will provide a more consistent viewing experience across devices.
