In contrast to the HTML editor (course element "HTML page"), the display in the block-based content editor already largely corresponds to the preview.

Media storage

The inserted media is not stored as with the course element "HTML page" in the storage folder of the course but in the Media Center. Here you will find all installed media and can also regulate further management and release.

Uploading media to the Media Center is done in the personal menu or in the Content Editor when creating a new content item.
