The oEmbed filter is a power filter that simplifies the inclusion of external content in HTML within Moodle. This filter reduces the amount of time it takes an instructor to add a video to an HTML page and does not require a technical understanding of how to copy embed code from any of the supported services. This integration also doesn’t require the institution to configure a YouTube API key.
This filter also has the ability to dynamically reduce page load times for embedded content by supporting lazy load, which content it only loaded once clicked by the user.
The plugin supports the following services and more are planned over time:
Overall this plugin is a significant improvement over the current embed process within Moodle and should save teachers and students a lot of time and headache, especially non technical users and for non YouTube services.
The filter is well supported by Microsoft and Remote-Learner who are actively improving all of the Office 365 plugins. The plugin is easy to use and works will with all supported sites.
