Ever wish you could assign your students to leave a video recording of themselves presenting something, right into a discussion board post in Blackboard? Ever have a need to quickly record feedback for a student, so that they can review your comments when looking at their grade?
Blackboard has a way.
At the moment we only have this tool available on the Palomar Blackboard Sandbox environment, but beginning in early January this tool will be available on our production Blackboard system as well. There is a “Getting Started With Video Everywhere” document available from Blackboard, from among the other resources available on their “On Demand” site. Blackboard has also put together a video to explain how the Video Everywhere tool might be used:
I’ve also prepared a video demonstrating how someone would record and post a video using that tool. The Blackboard documentation does give some caveats about how Internet Explorer and Chrome browsers might need their settings changed, but I didn’t need to make such changes on my own system when using the Record from Webcam tool.
Submitted for your approval: Video Everywhere.
