How to embed a video in a Blackboard item: Updated!

You may wonder: how do I put a video from YouTube, Vimeo, or elsewhere in Blackboard for my students to watch?

You can easily embed it in an Item. From any content area, click Build Content and select Item. Enter HTML mode by clicking on the HTML button on the Content Editor.

Copy the embed code into your clipboard, and paste it in the box. Click submit to save.

Note: You may need to enable the advanced features (rows 2 and 3 of icons) in the Content Editor to see the HTML button. Click the double chevron to show/hide those features.
