  2. Click ‘Manage Course Elements’ to see a list of the elements in the course.
  3. Click on the chalkboard and select ‘Edit Chalkboard’ (if the chalkboard has been activated you will need to select ‘Edit the live version’).
  4. Select ‘Manage Media’ and upload your video file – if you already have a file uploaded click on the image. To the right you should now see a small screen where you can preview the video, add it to the timeline, and a ‘Choose Thumbnail’ button.
