LMS Moodle – You can freely insert a link to a video in MS Stream into the course (e.g. in a module created by the instructor or as an outcome of a student’s work). However, LMS Moodle is not integrated with Office 365 applications, so after clicking, the video opens in the MS Stream window where you are prompted to log in.
