Zoom: Record a Lecture and Post it to Blackboard (Faculty)

This document provides an overview of how to lecture a presentation and post it to Blackboard. Zoom updates it's software on a regular basis with important security items as well as updates to features. To make sure you have the most current version, check for updates.

This is a fairly simple process of recording, uploading and sharing the file, and posting it to Blackboard. As always, remember to do a short test before recording the actual presentation. You should choose either Step 2A or 2B, depending on whether you want to save your lecture to the cloud (2A) or to your computer (2B). The cloud option automatically uploads to TechSmith Knowmia, but it could take up to 24 hours to access your recording. The local option is available immediately but requires more effort to upload to TechSmith Knowmia.

 Step 3 - Linking in Blackboard

  •   Link a Knowmia Video using a Weblink in Blackboard
    • For best practices with using video in Blackboard, download the Blackboard Content Type Selector for TechSmith Knowmia.

      TechSmith Knowmia provides an individual URL (webpage) for each video. You can link to a Knowmia video using the Weblink tool in Blackboard.

      Important Note: While Knowmia will record the analytics and quiz results in Knowmia, videos linked used the weblink cannot report back to Blackboard's Grade Center. You must use the Knowmia Tool if you want quiz results to appear in the Grade Center.

      Click the plus sign below to expand the menus for directions.

      • Copy the URL from Knowmia
          1. Click on the video in TechSmith Knowmia. 

          2. Click the Share button located beneath the video.

  •   Embedding Video into Blackboard
    • For best practices with using video in Blackboard, download the Blackboard Content Type Selector for TechSmith Knowmia.

      Embedding a video allows viewers to watch a video right in Blackboard Content Area. We are adding this embedded video to a Web Link rather than an Item so that students that have difficulty viewing embedded videos on a mobile device can view it directly in Knowmia.

      Copy the URL from TechSmith Knowmia

      1. Log into TechSmith Knowmia at https://siue.techsmithrelay.com/.

      2. Navigate to the video and click on the video's thumbnail.

      embed code

      6. Click on Copy. This will copy the embed code to your computer's clip board.

      7. Click Close.


      Create the Embedded Video in Blackboard

      Web link and embedded video
  •   Link a Knowmia Video in Blackboard for Grading
    • For best practices with using video in Blackboard, download the Blackboard Content Type Selector for TechSmith Knowmia.

      Linking to a video in TechSmith Knowmia is the quickest way for students to view a video. Linking to an individual video takes up less space in the Blackboard folder than embedding the video. This is critical if you have many other items within the folder. If you have a lot of videos to link to, see the knowledge base article "Link a Knowmia Folder in Blackboard."

      NOTE: If you export your course and import it to another semester, the link to the Knowmia platform will export/import, but you will have to re-link to the video.

      If you haven't already created a course folder in Knowmia , see the knowledge base article "Create a Folder."
      If you haven't uploaded the video to Knowmia, see the knowledge base article "Upload Media to Your Library"


      1. Navigate to the folder in Blackboard that you want the video to reside.

      2. Hover your mouse over "Build Content" to expand the menu. Click TechSmith Knowmia.



      3. Name the video, for example, "Welcome to BIOL 150."

      4. If you have quiz questions within the video, or you want the students to receive points for watching the video, click Yes for Enabled Evaluation.

      Yes enable evaluation

      5. Add the total points possible the student will receive.

      Quizzing: If the video has quiz questions, the points students receive will be divided equally by number of total points. For example, if there are two quiz questions and the total possible points are 10, if the student gets one wrong, he/she will receive 5 points for the video.
      No quiz questions: If there are no quiz questions and you just want to give credit to the students for just watching, they will receive the points based on the percentage they watched. For example, a student that watches the whole video would receive 100% of the points (10 points in our example above). A student that only watches 60% of the video will receive 60% of the points (6 points).

      Grading in Blackboard

      6. Set remaining options for due date and date and time restrictions as needed.

      7. Click Submit at the bottom of the page.

      8. Scroll to the bottom of the folder for the link. Click on the new link. A Knowmia link is designated by an orange icon.



      9. Knowmia will launch and you will be in "My Library." Navigate to the folder/sub-folder that contains the video by clicking on the folder icon or the Open Folder button.

      10. Click on Add Media button. The video player will open.

      add media

      11. If you accidentally selected the wrong video, click on Change Media in the tool bar. Navigate to the correct video and click Add Media button.

      reset media

      12. To return to Blackboard, click on the folder name in the breadcrumbs at the top of the window.

  •   Link a Knowmia Folder in Blackboard
    • For best practices with using video in Blackboard, download the Blackboard Content Type Selector for TechSmith Knowmia.

      Linking to a folder in TechSmith Knowmia is the cleanest way to organize multiple videos. Folders takes up less space in Blackboard and takes less time to link than linking individual videos.  If you have only one or two videos and would like to link or embed them individually, see the knowledge base article "Link a Knowmia Video in Blackboard." NOTE: Individual videos can report a score back to the grade center on video quiz questions, however linking to a folder only records analytics for time viewed and not quizzing scores. Additionally, the privacy settings on each video within the folder must be modified to "Only users from your organization".

      NOTE: If you export your course and import it to another semester, the link to the Knowmia platform will export/import, but you will have to re-link to the folder.

      If you haven't already created a course folder in Knowmia, see the knowledge base article "Create a Folder"
      If you haven't uploaded the video to Knowmia, see the knowledge base article "Upload Media to Your Library"

      In TechSmith Knowmia

      The default settings for each video in Knowmia is "Only users from your organization with a direct link". Since you are linking to a folder, the users will not have a direct link to the videos, only to the folder. The Privacy setting must be modified on each video within the folder to be "Only users from your organization".
      1. Navigate to the folder you want to link in Blackboard at siue.techsmithrelay.com.
      2. Enter the folder.
      3. Enter the first video and click the Privacy option.
      4. Modify the setting so the radio button is marked in front of "Only users from your organization". (It will save automatically.)
      5. Click the back button on your browser and repeat these steps for each video within the folder.

      In Blackboard

      1. Navigate to the folder in Blackboard that you want the videos to reside.

      2. Hover your mouse over "Build Content" to expand the menu. Click on TechSmith Knowmia


      3. Name the folder, for example, "Week 1."

      4. Click Submit at the bottom of the page.

      5. Blackboard adds the link as the last item at the bottom of the page. If necessary, scroll to the bottom of the page for the link. This links to Knowmia but you still have to select the video in Knowmia.

      6. A Knowmia link is designated by an orange icon.

        Knowmia icon

        Click on the new link.

      7. Knowmia will launch and you will be in "My Library." Navigate to the folder/sub-folder that contains the videos by clicking on the folder icon or the Open Folder button.

      8. Click on Add Folder button. All the videos will display on the screen. Anytime you add a video to this folder, the students will have access to the videos. 

        Add folder

      9. To return to Blackboard, click on the folder name in the breadcrumbs at the top of the window.
