Blackboard upgrade: Video everywhere

Monday, March 10, 2014
Michelle Donaldson  

The Blackboard upgrade scheduled for summer 2014 will bring multiple changes to the way Blackboard looks and functions. This multi-part news series looks at those changes in detail. All current instructors of record can preview the new Blackboard by logging into https://bbtest.ohio.edu.


Screen shot: Recording a video in Blackboard

Blackboard's updated Content Editor lets you record and embed video anywhere within your Blackboard courses and organizations. All you need to get started is a webcam and a YouTube/Google account.

Creating a video is easy. Just click the webcam icon in the Content Editor and follow the prompts. Blackboard will ask you to log into your YouTube/Google account and then authorize the connection. After that, you're ready to record. When you are done, Blackboard automatically uploads the finished video to your YouTube channel.

Highlights of Video Everywhere include:

  • Seamlessly record and embed YouTube videos
  • Available anywhere the full Content Editor is enabled
    • The main exceptions are the email editor and group creation, both of which use a limited-format version of the Content Editor
  • Re-use previously recorded videos by choosing them from your own Blackboard video library
