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. The screenshots in this article may not look exactly like the version of Zoom you are running; if not, try updating Zoom on your computer.

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.

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

      Linking to a video in Relay 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 Relay Folder in Blackboard."

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

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

      TechSmith Relay

      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).

      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 Relay link is designated by a blue icon.

      Linking to a folder in Relay 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 Relay 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 Relay platform will export/import, but you will have to re-link to the folder.

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

      In TechSmith Relay

      The default settings for each video in Relay 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 Relay

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

      4. Click Submit at the bottom of the page. 

      5. Scroll to the bottom of the folder for the link. Click on the new link. A Relay link is designated by a blue icon.

      6. Relay 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.

      7. 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
