If you have media files that you would like to present all in one location in moodle, or if you need to monitor student views of the media files, use the media gallery.

To do this, add the Media Gallery Block.

  1. Click on the Turn editing on button in the top right-hand corner.
  2. Scroll down the module screen and find the Add A Block block with the Add... drop-down menu.
  3. Choose Media Gallery from the list.

Once you have added the block, you can move it to your desired location. To learn more about moving blocks see the How to move or customise the location of blocks help page.

Now add the media files to the gallery by clicking on the Media Gallery link and choosing Add Media, then Add New,  Media Upload (or select existing content that you have already uploaded).

After uploading, choose Go To Media Gallery

Once the media files have been viewed, you can see who viewed them from Actions, Analytics


The Analytics page shows the statistics for your media gallery.

To view statistics for individual videos and users, click on Engagement.

Each student is listed with the number of times they have watched the videos.

Click the (+) icon to get a breakdown of the number of times each student has watched each video.
