When we upgrade Blackboard this summer a new feature of interest will is named “Video Everywhere”. Video Everywhere allows you to embed a video recorded from your web cam into any Blackboard content area.
Within the text editor is an icon to access your web cam.
Clicking on on this icon you will be asked to sign into YouTube with using your Google Account.
Within a couple of clicks you will have linked your YouTube account.
You may then record your short video without having to leave Blackboard.
And within moments your video will have been embedded within your Blackboard course.
This feature is available to both staff and students. Videos can be added within most areas of Blackboard where you see the text editor, for example discussion boards, blogs, and wikis, as well as when adding content.
