Link DT+ videos in Blackboard

Instructors can link videos directly into Blackboard to share with a class, although DT+ does not offer an "embed" option.

TIP: To make sure your off-campus students can access links and embedded videos, we recommend creating the links while off campus so they include the appropriate EZ Proxy language.

Share a film link

From an off-campus location, navigate to the DT+ video you want. Copy the webpage address from your browser.

Now open your Blackboard course, click on "Build Content" and choose "Web Link." Create a name for the link, paste the permalink into the URL box, and submit.
