Building: Embed videos

GitHub Learning Lab is no longer accepting new public courses from outside of GitHub.


For each step in your course, you can include a link to a Vimeo or YouTube video. These will show in the step on Learning Lab for users that have registered for your course:

Usage example

- title: What is GitHub?
  description: After watching this video, close the first issue in your repository.
  video: https://youtube.com/embed/w3jLJU7DT5E


YouTube and Vimeo each have different formatting for their embeddable URLs. Your video property should look something like this:

  • YouTube: https://youtube.com/embed/<VIDEO_ID>
  • Vimeo: https://player.vimeo.com/video/<VIDEO_ID>
