When you are required to submit a video file to Blackboard for an assignment, please ensure that it is not larger than 100MB. If the file is larger than 100MB it will fail during upload. A solution to this issue is to upload the video to YouTube and make it unlisted so that it can't be searched by the public, but you can provide the link to your instructor within the assignment.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Select the Content Area from the Course Menu that holds the Assignment. For example, the Course Content or Assignments area
  2. Click the name of the Assignment. The Upload Assignment page appears
  3. Click Browse My Computer button next to Attach File
  4. Locate the video file on your computer that you want to upload and click OPEN.
  5. Complete the Comments field if necessary
  6. Click Submit when the page is complete
  7. You will see a green line stating the assignment is complete and you can see your submission history - always make sure you see that.  If not, re-submit it, clear cache if necessary or try another browser.

 

If you want to upload a video to YouTube for posting to the Assignment in Blackboard:

  1. Sign into YouTube.
  2. Click the Upload button at the top of the page.
  3. Before you start uploading the video you can chose the video privacy settings. (Choose Unlisted from the privacy settings so that you can keep it private, but the instructor can still watch it from the link you will provide).
  4. Select the video you'd like to upload from your computer. 
  5. As the video is uploading you can edit both the basic information and the advanced settings of the video. (not required)
  6. Click Share to privately share your video.
  7. Copy the link that is presented and go to Blackboard.
  8. Select the Content Area from the Course Menu that holds the Assignment. For example, the Course Content or Assignments area
  9. Click the name of the Assignment. The Upload Assignment page appears
  10. Under the text submission area of the assignment, paste the URL link from YouTube.
  11. Click Submit when the page is complete
  12. You will see a green line stating the assignment is complete and you can see your submission history - always make sure you see that.  If not, re-submit it, clear cache if necessary or try another browser.
