Blackboard Multimedia


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. 

Add a YouTube Video

  • Enter a Content Area (i.e. External Links or Course Documents) and click Build Content
  • Under Mashups click YouTube Video
  • Type a description of the clip you would like to search for (i.e. Moon Landing) and click Go
  • 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.
  • On the next page you'll have the option to add a description of your video. When you are done editing it, click Submit.
