Link to Films on Demand in Blackboard
(Playlist instructions)

  1. If you need assistance with the instructions, watch this "how-to" video.
  2. Go to the Library website:
  3. Click on "Streaming Media".
  4. Choose "Films on Demand" from the list of streaming options. Perform a keyword search. Notice the "By segment" and "By title" title options. In the example below, a search for "physics" presents possible titles in a drop-down box.
  5. You may want to refine your results by selecting "Newest to Oldest" or changing "Segments" to "Titles."
  6. Select the film, or the segment, you want to insert into Blackboard. Segments are usually only 3 or 4 minutes in length.
  7. After you click on the film's title, look under the video box in the "Details" tab. Cut and paste the link from the TITLE URL box into Blackboard.
  8. Go to Blackboard. Find the appropriate place to paste the link. Select "Build Content" and click "URL" from the drop down list.
  9. Type the video title or segment into the "Name" field. Paste the "Title URL" into the URL field.
  10. Provide the video abstract and/or directions for your students in the text box.
  11. Select "Open in New Window" so that the resource opens outside of the Blackboard template. Click "Submit" when finished.
