Using Audio in a Course

While currently AOM LMS doesn't have a direct way to create an Audio Module (similar to say a Video module), there is way to do it in the platform using Text/HTML module. To do so, follow the steps below:

  1. Login to your Admin Dashboard and click on Assets-->"Media Library". Upload the MP3 file here and copy the entire URL of the mp3 by clicking on "Choose/Select". For example, see below: The actual URL should look something like:

    Note that your URL may vary as the "aom-uploads-test" will be replaced by your organizations prefix. 
  2. Now click on Courses, then Text/HTML module
  3. Click +Create Text/HTML Module. Add the name of the module.
  4. Click the green + icon to add a new Row and full width single column. Then click the grey + icon to add a block. Add a "Code Block"
  5. Click the gear icon on the code block to open Settings. On the Code window pop , enter the following HTML code. Make sure to replace to URL in the src="" to the actual URL of the mp3 that you got from Step 1 above. 
  6. Click on "Save Changes" and then update the module as well by click on "Update Module"
  7. You can now preview this module by clicking on Preview button and it will play the audio file:
