Videos in Blackboard
Streaming videos may be linked to or embedded into Blackboard. However, the instructor must be able to confirm that the video was originally uploaded by the copyright holder. For example, a TedX video that was uploaded by the official TedX account is fine to use. However, a TedX video that was uploaded by a different company or a personal account is not to be used. Feel free to contact the Copyright Technician should you need help in determining the copyright holder.
Videos from library databases may be embedded into Blackboard for ease of access for both students and professors. Simply find the streaming video file using the library's search screen and click on the link to the video. Each of the various streaming video databases will have a link to copy and paste into Blackboard.
For example, on the CBC Curio database you must click on Share and the copy the link to embed the video.
Caution must be exercised when showing YouTube videos in class. The instructor or student showing the video must be able to confirm that it is not an illegal upload of the video. Here are some clues for determining if the copyright holder uploaded the video:
- Look at the username and YouTube channel name. Many companies and organizations will have official YouTube Channels that they post their content to.
- The description of the video may include information about the copyright owner.
- Do not show YouTube videos with descriptions that include messages such as copyright infringement not intended.
Should you need help determining the uploader of the content, please contact the Copyright Technician.
*It is never copyright infringement to provide students with a link to an online item or source.
