How do I add an animated GIF to my course?
You can add a GIF anywhere within your Course that contains a text editor.
Please note: This tutorial is about adding a GIF from the Text Editor. You can also add GIFs using the ‘Upload Image’ button in the ‘Text with Image’ template. To find out how to do that, click here.
Step 1: Click on the ‘Image’ button (highlighted below in orange) on the Toolbar at the top of the Text Editor. An ‘Image Properties’ box should pop up on your screen.
Step 2: Find your GIF. This can be done via Google or a site that specialises in GIFs – www.giphy.com is a great place to find relevant ones. When you’ve found a GIF you like, copy its URL and paste it in the ‘URL’ field in the ‘Image Properties’ box.
Step 3: A preview of your GIF should appear in the text box. Adjust the Width and Height settings to determine the size of the image.
Step 4: When you’re happy with appearance of your GIF, select OK and it should appear inline.
