Can I add a video to an interactive map -- to support learning at home

Apr 05, 2020

Hi all!

I'm brand new to this but I've been writing curriculum and delivering content for a long time.  I want to make a tutorial for parents about how to physically create the best learning environment for their child (K-5) at home.  I'm thinking of having a photo of a classroom with buttons for each important aspect that parents need to recreate at home.  When they click on the button, a quick video pops up that offers more explanation.  I'm planning on having at least 5 or 6 buttons on the classroom map.  Ideas? I've attached a random picture of a classroom.

Any advice would be appreciated!!!

Hi Celena,


There are many ways in which you can do this: you can use the Marker function to create an interactive graphic (or map). Inside the marker you can add video or other media, see this tutorial: 

If the markers don't quite work for you, use buttons on the graphic and add each video to a layer. Use a trigger to 'Show layer xyz when the user clicks button xyz'.. Make sure you add some kind of close button on the layer.   

Here are a few video challenges where the community have shared demos using video, which may give you ideas: 

I hope this helps get you started, but shout out if you need more help. 

Good luck!
