Blackboard: Adding Videos

 

Business eLearning Recommendation

Videos you wish students to view in Blackboard should be uploaded to HEAnet Media Hosting and then embedded in Blackboard. Uploading videos and playing videos directly into Blackboard can lead to issues such as slow loading time and sound/video gaps.

.

How it Works?

Users can upload their original videos using an easy-to-use upload form. The videos are transcoded into formats suitable for streaming and podcasting. Once transcoded the videos can then be embedded in a user’s website, or viewed using a unique URL.

Who Can Use the Service?

Any HEAnet member institutions can avail of the service. The HMH service uses the Edugate federation service for authentication. For a user to log into the HMH service, their institution must be a member of the Edugate federation.
