The internet is full of delights, a treasure trove to be pilfered (where pilfer stands for “using legally sourced files”).

"Food Fight" on youTube

And Moodle is an excellent platform on which to share these delightful (educational) finds with students and to enrich course areas with images, audio, video. For example, you can very easily embed youTube videos in Moodle pages, like this excellent 5’30’’ Food Fight video by “touristpictures” (an "abridged history of American-centric warfare, from WWII to present day, told through the foods of the countries in conflict.")

Of course youTube isn’t the only place to find video. We have collected a whole page of links to multimedia resources on our CLT multimedia resources page for staff to use in their teaching.
