How to Share Short Videos with Employees
The animated videos available to MCIT members as part of MCIT’s loss control and risk management services can be shared with member employees in two ways. See instructions below or download PDF of instructions.
Option 1: Stream Videos on Intranet Site
You need to capture the embed code for each video to stream them on your intranet site. Work with your intranet manager to place the embed code.
|1. Locate the video you want to add to your intranet site on the Step Wisely Animated Videos page. Click on the paper airplane icon in the upper right corner of the video (see above).|
|2. Click the blue “Copy” box to capture the embed code (see left).|
|3. Paste the embed code into the code of the intranet page where you want the video to appear (see above). The embed code looks something like this: <iframe src=”https://player.vimeo.com/video/111111111” width=”640” height=”360” frameborder=”0” allowfullscreen></iframe>|
Option 2: Provide Hyperlink to Video
This allows you to provide a link to the animated videos to employees that takes them to view the animated videos online. You could post the links on the entity’s intranet site or distribute in e-mails, for example.
Suggestion: For the most impact, hyperlink a screen shot image of the video’s title screen to increase the visual appeal.
Follow steps 1 through 3 above for capturing the embed code.
Paste the embed code into a text file.
Delete the struck text in this code example:
<iframe src=”https://player.vimeo.com/video/111111111 ” width=”640” height=”360” frameborder=”0” allowfullscreen></iframe>
- The remaining text is the URL (link) for the video at the MCIT online player. Use the link to connect employees to the video.
