How to: Embed Instagram Photos in Blackboard

Just like Twitter, you can embed your Instagram photos into Blackboard as well.  There are two steps to this process.

First, use this site, SnapWidget,  to create your embedded code.  Click the Get Your Free Widget button, choose your settings, and click the Create Widget button when you are ready.  Copy the code that you receive.

Next, login to your Blackboard site and navigate to the area you want the widget to appear.  Click Build Content at the top of the page and select Item for the drop-down menu.  On the next page, “Create Item”, give a name to the widget such as “Instagram Photos”.  In the text field below, click on the HTML button and a pop-up will appear.  In the pop-up box, paste the code that you copied. Click the update button and Submit! All finished 🙂
