JoVE Directions

Some important points for using JoVE:

  • We only have access to the Brain & Behavior package, so avoid the search box. If you use the individual collection links on the library databases page rather than the main JoVE link, you will get to only the content we subscribe to.
  • You shouldn’t have to set up any individual JoVE accounts to access the videos, but instructors may want to set up an account to embed videos into Moodle that will work from off campus.

Linking to videos that work from off campus:

  • There are two options for professors who want to point students towards specific JoVE videos.
    1. Share URL in Moodle: You can share a video with students by posting the URL in Moodle, but the link you’ll find in JoVE won’t have the authentication code in it to make it work from off campus. If you send Taryn Bartholomew a video title or URL, she can modify the link to something that you can post in Moodle to give students easy access to it.
    2. Create a JoVE account for yourself to embed videos in Moodle:
      1. Create an individual account HERE.
      2. If you use the JoVE links on the databases page, you will be signed in as a general Lycoming user. Log out of the general Lycoming user account and sign in with your individual account (you cannot embed videos with the general account). Navigate to the desired video, then click on the EMBED VIDEO button under the video. Make sure that whenever you are embedding content that you are signed into your personal JoVE account.
      3. Copy the Embed code.
      4. Go to your Moodle page. Click on the "Add an activity or resource" link, then on the "Page" option.
      5. Click on the toolbar toggle button (it looks like a downward arrow) in the upper left side of the menu under "Page Content", then on the "< / >" ("HTML") button (see screenshot). Screenshot of how to access HTML code in Moodle
      6. Paste your code. Click on the Update button. Then save & display your page.
      7. Your JoVE video should not have a small green "Log in" flag in the upper left corner.

Any questions, problems, or requests for URLs should be sent to Taryn Bartholomew.
