Managing Your Media Library in Moodle

Instructors can manage their course content from a Warpwire Media Library directly within Moodle. From the Media Library, you can organize and curate course media, like customizing asset settings and adding tags to group related content. You can also upload or capture new media, view per-user analytics, and even change share settings so you can share media with your desired audience.

To easily access your course Media Library, we suggest adding the Warpwire activity to your course. To do so, follow the steps below.

How to Create a Media Library Tool in Your Moodle Course

Begin by navigating to the Moodle course you want to add Warpwire to.

Next, click the "Turn Editing On" button in the upper-right of the screen, which will allow you to add the Warpwire tool wherever you'd like.
