Goal: Add and customize videos

Thursday - Lesson 10:


There are several types of  videos you can add to your site.

First, we'll explore VIDEO BOX.  This uses free wix videos to show cool, short snippets of videos on your site.

Here's how:

  1. Click the ADD button

  2. Choose VIDEOS & MUSIC


I'm happy to help!

I'll be here from

9-10am & 3-4pm.

  1. Use the search bar to find a video that relates to your site. Here, I chose to search for "butterfly".

  2. When you find a video you like, select it and choose ADD TO PAGE.

That was easy! 

Now you have a video that automatically plays when your reader visits the page.

Make your OWN video

Another option is to record your own video.  However, since your site will be publicly viewable, please check with your parent or guardian before posting ANY identifying information about yourself, including videos.  If you want to make your own video, see below.  If not, that's ok, too!

As far as actually filming and editing your video, you can use any video software you have on your computer.  If you have a Mac, you can use iMovie.  If you have specific questions about making a video, please ask me during chat hours or send an email anytime.  ​
