The UI Libraries recommends using the Course Materials+ system to add streaming video to your ICON site. In addition to providing off-campus access with HawkIDs, this will enable the Course Reserves staff to access the library materials in ICON to update links and troubleshoot, if necessary. See the Streaming Video in ICON (Course Reserves) tab for more information.
Follow these instructions to place an URL to a publicly available online video in ICON. For UI Libraries content, we recommend using Course Reserves to ensure students have HawkID access from off-campus.
