Video Integration Tips

  • When linking to individual titles, be sure to use the Title/Segment URL and NOT the URL displayed in the web browser's address bar. The Title/Segment URL is located below every video on the View Video page.
  • Make sure when copying the Title/Segment URL that you do not copy any additional spaces at the end of the URL. Blackboard can be rigid in how it accepts URLs and that extra space could cause an issue.
  • Be wary that sometimes the "&" in a URL can get displaced when clicking through different text/html formats.

Adding a Link in Blackboard

  1. Find the video you want to link to. Copy the URL from "Title URL" or "Segment URL" box (NOT the browser address bar).
  2. Paste the link into Blackboard. For directions on how to do so, view this Adding a URL tutorial.
