Publish Media to a Course Media Gallery

Videos from your My Media library can be published to a course media gallery, where they are visible to students in the course.

Note: Publishing a video to a course media gallery is different than embedding a video in a course page.

To share videos through a course media gallery, you need to first enable the Media Gallery in the course. Then you have two options to publish videos to the gallery. One is to add videos from within the Media Gallery itself, the other is to publish to one or more course galleries simultaneously from your My Media list.
