Youtube videos fullscreen option?
Matthew Erpelding

I was hoping to use Sophia to track my choir students as they watched videos for practice. However, it is hard to view the video because of the limited size of the embedded video player, and changing the resolution of the video doesn't help. There are some work-around solutions, like zooming in on the whole page, but that is somewhat cumbersome. However, having the kids watch the video in Youtube (the better option) doesn't track their progress in viewing.

Is there any way to watch the embedded Youtube video in full screen, while still on the Sophia site?

Hi Matthew, my name is Mattie Eslinger and I am the Digital Marketing Associate with Sophia. Unfortunately, Youtube videos embedded within Sophia are not accessible in a larger view. Sophia Tutorials are designed to surround the student in a learning environment and have the ability to create a lesson that is more than a video, which limits its view ability. I'm sorry I cannot be more help! If you have any additional questions please feel free to reach out to me personally at mattie.eslinger[at]
