Embedding ReView Recordings using Mashups

ReView recordings can be added to any location within a Blackboard module, making it easy to share lecture recordings and personal captures/screencasts with your students.  The guidance below will explain how to embed a video using a Content Item.

Embedding a ReView Recording Within a Content Item using Mashups

Use the Content Item to display the ReView video player in a specific location within your module e.g. a video introduction that you have created for a particular week or topic within your Learning Materials.  This allows students to play the recording without leaving the Blackboard module.

  1. Open your Blackboard module and go to the location where you want to add your ReView recording e.g. a folder within your Learning Materials. Create a new Content Item.
