IT and Media Services work together to bring videos of some campus lectures to Blackboard. If the Media Center recieves a request to video tape a lecture or other campus event, that video can be converted to be streamed from IT’s streaming server. Once posted to the streaming server the appropriate web page can be posted to Blackboard providing access to the content to your students within your Blackboard site.
In the next couple of weeks we will be testing the NBC News Building Block for Blackboard. This building block provides access to archived video and multimedia that can be displayed within Blackboard. According to Blackboard the Building Block provides:
- News footage of historic and current events
- Primary source documents, articles and political cartoons
- Photographs, images, charts and graphs
- Critical analysis and mini-documentaries
