The following is a cross-post from my “Technology 4 Teachers” (T4T) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) blog.

Question:

In a wiki I created in wikispaces, how can I embed video?

To add a video to a Wikispaces page:

Answer:
Before working on your WikiSpaces site, copy the embed code for your video from the website where you found it or uploaded it. The steps to do this are:

  1. Edit your page on which you want to put a video.
  2. Click WIDGET in the toolbar.
  3. Click VIDEO and choose the source of your video.
  4. Alternatively (if you want to embed video or other media from another site) click OTHER HTML. Paste your embed code.
  5. Click SAVE.

This 1 min, 43 second YouTube tutorial demonstrates these steps.
