Glenys, thank you for the helpful posting ---the Moodle magic worked!
I'm faced with another question now as to what type of media player format to save it in. Do you have any recommendations? My computer automatically asked me to use QuickTime. I allowed it, but I don't have a QuickTime player so I can't actually see the video yet. Just wondering if QuickTime is the standard, or if something else would be more widely accepted among students accessing the course from their computers at home....Really prefer them NOT to have to download a media player to view the video if possible.
Also, could you tell me the size of your image in posting above? I saved my video as a 640x480, but I think it might be a little too large (can't tell yet since I don't have quicktime installed) -- I think the size of your inserted youtube file above would be perfect.
Thank you again for your assistance. It's quite exciting to get it working after many unsucessful attempts!
