For Studio and LMS, already reviewed by Leslie Gerhat
Pre-roll Videos
Courses that run on edx.org can now include 5-10 second long pre-roll video messages. A pre-roll video plays automatically before other course videos, and can be used to advertise your organization, promote an XSeries, publicize an event, and so on.
When a learner plays a video in a course that has a pre-roll video, and the learner has not been shown the pre-roll video within the last seven days, the pre-roll video plays first. While the pre-roll video plays, the learner can select Skip to continue on to the video that they selected, or Do not show again to permanently opt out of seeing pre-roll videos in the course.
For information about adding a pre-roll video and its transcripts to your course, see (xref to come).
