BoB Embedding

You can embed recordings directly into your module board BUT if you or your students are not already logged in to BoB, you will need to do this before you can watch the embedded video.

If you are not logged in, you will see a message “Please sign into BoB and refresh this page”.  Clicking on this opens a new browser tab prompting you to login to BoB.  After signing in, you need to return to Blackboard and REFRESH the page in order to watch the embedded video.

How to Embed a recording in your Module board

Copy the Embed text from BoB. 
Within the module board area where you wish the embedded recording to appear;

  • select Create and from the menu select Document
  • Give the Document a Title
  • Select Add HTML from the document screen

The screen prompts the viewer to Sign In which when clicked opens a new tab and the viewer will need to sign in to BoB.  The viewer will then need to return to the open Blackboard tab, refresh the page and then the recording will appear and be able to be played.
