As of April 30th, 2013, we now have a new tool in BlackBoard called Video Everywhere. This new tool allows teachers and students alike to use their web cameras and YouTube accounts to easily make and embed Youtube videos. Just so you know, the Circles team is working on designing some video on demand content specific to this feature and Valencia faculty, but until that is finished, we wanted you to have a place you could go to get started with using Youtube in your Blackboard Courses.
First things First… If you don’t have a youtube account you are going to need to get one. If you are unsure of how to get one, watch this video.
Once you have a YouTube account, then you are ready to utilize the Video Everywhere feature in Blackboard. The video below is a quick screen cast to give you an idea about how the new feature works. The link below that takes you to an introductory PDF for getting started with Video Everywhere.

Don’t forget, you can also use Youtube in blackboard for the MashUp feature. In the video below, Gary Kokaisel offers some ideas for how to take advantage of digital mashups in Blackboard.
