Which option is better? Embed your video, or choose the download/insert it to the course?

Feb 14, 2017


Just wondering which is a better option to insert a video into a course - use the embedded code or download the video and insert it as a file. If you guys can share the pros and cons, that would be great.

We choose embed our courses using Vimeo for the following reasons

  • Able to update just the video and not republish whole module
  • Ability to link multiple modules to one video
  • Ability to link to video outside of the elearning modules
  • Better download speeds than we get from our LMS
  • Cheaper than purchasing additional space/bandwidth from our LMS host
