Adding Content Library 360 Media to Your Interaction

  1. Select the step in your interaction where you want to add a photo, illustration, or video. Then click the Content Library 360 Media icon in the media panel.

  2. When the media browser opens, use the drop-down list in the upper right corner to select the type of media you’re looking for: Photos, Illustrations, or Videos. Then type a search term in the field at the top of the window and press Enter. (Tip: The browser remembers your last search term during the current session.)

  3. Zoom in and out by using the zoom slider in the lower left corner or by holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and scrolling your mouse wheel.
  4. If you’re browsing through videos, you can preview them before adding them to your interaction. Just click the Preview button that appears when your mouse hovers over a video thumbnail.
  5. Select the asset you want to use and click Insert to add it your interaction.

Setting Media Properties

After adding a Content Library 360 photo, illustration, or video to your interaction, you can customize its properties, such as position, size, and alternate text. These properties appear below your media (except in media tour interactions).

Property

Applies To

Description

Position

Photos
Illustrations
Videos

Choose where you want the asset to display in your published interaction (top, bottom, left, or right).

Size

Photos
Illustrations
Videos

Choose either Automatic or Custom.

If you choose Automatic (the default option), Engage will adjust the size of the asset so it fits in the allotted space in your published interaction.

If you choose Custom, enter the width and height in pixels.

Mark the Lock Aspect Ratio box to keep the asset from being distorted when you adjust its size.

Zoom Image

Photos
Illustrations

This option adds a magnifying glass icon to the image in your published output. When learners click the image, it'll zoom to a larger version—either in the current window or in a separate window, depending on your selection.

Tip: An image will only zoom when its original size is larger than the allotted space in your published interaction. In other words, if an image has to be scaled down to fit in your interaction, it can be zoomed. If an image is small enough to fit in your interaction without scaling, it can’t be zoomed.

Include Playbar

Videos

Mark this box to add player controls to the video so learners can play, pause, rewind, and fast-forward.

When you include a playbar, you also have the option to automatically start the video or wait for learners to click the play button.

Do not compress video at publish

Videos

Mark this box if you don’t want the video to be compressed in your published interaction. Video quality may be higher, but the published output will also be larger.

Uncheck the box to compress the video in your published interaction. It’ll be optimized for web playback, resulting in smaller file sizes. This is especially helpful for learners with slow internet connections.

This property is available for MP4 videos created with baseline, main, or high profiles. If it’s grayed out, it means the video is another file type or profile, in which case the video will be compressed in your published interaction.

Alternate Text

Videos

Enter a brief description of the photo, illustration, or video. Screen readers will read the description to your learners.

  2. When the media browser opens, choose a media type, enter a search term, and press Enter.
