‍Add multi-media to your case study

The wiki has made It really easy to add video, audio, photos and even google maps to your case study by using their Widgets!!

To do this open your case study (at the bottom of your project page) and click in there area you would like to add for example a video that you have previously saved somewhere else such as youtube.
Click on the Widget button in the toolbar select VIDEO from the LH menu, choose which youtube and follow their instructions


  1. Go to the video on that you want to embed
  2. Look for the "Embed"field on the video page
  3. Copy the text from that box into the box below
  4. Click Preview to preview the video or click Save

It is the same process for uploading audio and maps etc.

To upload PHOTOS is slightly different instead of the Widget button you click on the FILE button then the EXTERNAL IMAGE tab.
Enter an external image address (such as FLICKR instructions on how to do this are below), click "Load", then double click the image to insert it into the page.

You are now well on the way to producing an informative case study that is not just text based!!
