Suggestion to move introductory text
I suggest moving the introductory text in the Activity (up to the sentence "It's legal, and it's free.") to before the activity box. I interpret this text as general content, with the steps in the activity designed to support our understanding of these points.
I think the page will be more balanced with substantive content before and after the activity.
From an editing perspective -- I agree with moving introductory text to before the activity box. At the time is was a layout think trying to get the size of the box to work with the two video thumbnails -- was too tiered at the time to figure out a smarter layout that would work.
Go for it!
I successfully moved the text to before the box. I think it works pretty well. I noticed that the videos are in the activity box on the next page, CC basics. That'd be my preference, but I didn't try it. Not sure I could get it to work: be matched up well and keep the numbering of the tasks.
I agree -- much better and the layout works.
In this instance I set up a table. Left column for the activity box and right column for the videos. You're right, later in the tutorial the videos are embedded in the activity box. Works well if there is only one video, but harder to get the layout working with two videos -- hence the table solution.
One option might be to use two separate activity boxes -- one for each video? Although I think the layout is OK as it stands.
