This tutorial will walk you through the creation of a custom XBlock. It will allow to display a video in a course, using oEmbed, and record when the student finishes watching it.
First, grab the source code for XBlock at https://github.com/edx/XBlock :
$ git clone https://github.com/edx/XBlock.git $ cd XBlock
Follow the instructions in
README.md to get the workbench server up and running. Once you're done, you should be able to visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/
