YouTube is a site that helps you search and post videos. YouTube is so popular that many mainstream news media providers have uploaded archived footage and news broadcasts to YouTube. Blackboard 9 allows you to search, link and play these videos right in your site.

Scroll through the list of videos that YouTube displays and click Preview to watch the video, or Select to add the YouTube video to the Content Area.
