Create a link in Blackboard to Bb Collaborate Live or Archived Sessions

Last Updated: Aug 04, 2014 10:39AM PDT
Here is a short video on how to place Bb Collaborate recordings and lectures into the course menu. (This is called the Collaborate Scheduling Manager)  http://screencast.com/t/loaR78bZR2L6

There are two types of archives that you can place within a content area in your course, a Blackboard archived session and a converted .mp4 video file.

1. The Bb Collaborate session itself: Go to Tools => Bb Collaborate => Recordings => click downward facing arrows for the archive and get the Guest Link => copy link then paste into your Archived Live Sessions content area as a file or item.

2. The mp4 file: Go to Tools => Bb Collaborate => Recordings => right click the .mp4 and copy link location => Paste into your Archived Live Sessions content area as a file or item.

Students can also access the files the same way if they don't click on the Archived session link by going to  Tools => Bb Collaborate => Recordings and selecting the correct archive.
