Media Library: **The Big Picture
Use the Media Library tool to build a database of text, image, video, and audio entries to enhance your course. You organize these Media Library entries into collections. A Media Library collection, called Glossary, is automatically created for you by default, but you can also create other collections to group entries that are related. To add an entry to the Media Library, you upload a file from your local computer and place it in a collection.
For a music appreciation course, a course designer creates three collections titled The Baroque Period, The Classical Period, and The Romantic Period. Each collection contains audio files that sample the music of the period, image files that contain pictures of important composers, and text files that define important terms
Students can view the media library entries you create by going to the Media Library tool, but you can also create links to allow Student to access media library entries from within files. Students can click the link in the file to display the text, image, video, or audio file in a pop-up window.
- An entry titled Paris, which contains an image file of the city of Paris, is automatically linked to occurrences of the word Paris in all files.
- You enter several terms and definitions in your Glossary collection, and each term is automatically linked to the first occurrence only of the term in all files.
