The best way to upload a video to Blackboard is through Kaltura, Johns Hopkins Engineering’s video platform. The benefits to uploading this way include better playability on mobile devices and improved streaming for students with weaker internet connections, as well as easier captioning, editing, and video player controls.
Here’s how to upload your video to Kaltura in Blackboard:
- In any content area in Blackboard (e.g., Announcement, Discussion, Item, Module, etc.), click on Mashups
- Click on Add New –> Media Upload
- Chose the video file you want to upload and wait for it to process. Optionally give your video a description and some tags.
- Now you can select the video to add it to your course
That’s it. If you have questions feel free to reach out to email@example.com.
