Creating Off campus access to video content via Blackboard

Due to copyright restrictions, video is only available on the university campus. The following is a description of how staff can make video available to students off campus using Blackboard.

Videos must be eligible and not restricted under the "College Campus" agreement.

Step 1: Ensure that the video is listed on the Network Video pages

Step 2: Create a valid URL within Blackboard

  • Go to the appropriate area within Blackboard and add an external link by appending the filename to the URL mms://
  • For example: mms://

The video will now be accessible off campus via Blackboard
