Videos and graphics in Blackboard

Your Blackboard (Bb) course sites often contain links to videos or graphics stored outside of the Blackboard environment, 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 or the graphic is being blocked for "security" reasons that have nothing to do with the content of the video/graphic, or the quality of the source.

We recommend that you and your students enable your browser to allow the videos and graphics to display play when they are presented through your Bb course sites.
