Multimedia level

Multimedia levels are essentially the non-fact-learning levels. That is to say they are the levels that DON'T draw from any of the course databases.
Please note: Multimedia levels will not be shown in the apps. So if 'Level 1' is multimedia and 'Level 2' is regular, 'Level 2' will appear as 'Level 1' in the app.

They can be slideshows, videos, audio clips or just plain text (though not very much plain text).

Multimedia levels are there to answer two main needs:

1. If questions are occurring in the learners' minds, a well-timed, easily digestible slideshow or video explanation can give delightful enlightenment. These should aim to be as light as possible - no more than 80 characters per slide is a good rule to stick to - and to explain no more than is needed at any given time.
2. Once people have started to learn some more words, a multimedia level - perhaps a short video clip or audio recording or maybe a slideshow telling a story in text can be an amazing tool to reward the user's hard work. Few things are as exhilarating and so motivating as watching a video in a foreign language and realising that you suddenly understand it. The same is true of any new thing that you learn realising that the facts that you have learned are allowing you to perceive the world more richly and more deeply is a gorgeous pleasure. As a course creator, it is your duty and your privilege to give people that pleasure! Add a video or slide show to a multimedia level

Find the URL of the video, slideshow or other media that you would like to embed, e.g. on Youtube. Copy it. Type "embed:" into the 'Multimedia level' box, and then paste in the URL. It should look, for example, like this: embed:youtube.com/xxxxxx Click 'Save'.  Related articles: Add audio to a course. Add pictures / photos to my course.
