Videos in Blackboard


Your Blackboard (Bb) course sites often contain links to videos stored outside of the Blackboard system, such as YouTube, Vimeo, or Screencast.

Unfortunately, your internet browser -- Internet Explorer (IE), Firefox, Chrome, or Safari, for example -- might try to block access to linked videos.

If this happens, the browser will indicate that the video is being blocked for "security" reasons that have nothing to do with the content of the video or the quality of the source.

Because of this, we recommend that you enable your browser to allow the videos to play when they are presented through your Bb course sites.
