Streaming Media Resources for Faculty

This guide is designed to help faculty and staff using streaming media resources for instruction and learning.

Using Streaming Media in Blackboard

Streaming media from databases can be added to Blackboard.  Each database works a little differently, but here’s an example for a film on the Alexander Street or Academic Video Online platform.

In Academic Video Online:

1.  After you find your film, Copy the URL from the address bar.



In Blackboard:

1.  Go to Build Content. Click Create: Web Link.



3.  Name the film and paste the URL.



5.   Click Submit.  The film will now appear as a link in Blackboard.
