Sometimes you may wish to provide students access to a podcast from another year or another course which you teach. Only students who were enrolled on a particular year of a course will be able to view the podcasts on the Video Portal itself – so you cannot simply provide a link, rather you will need to either embed the podcast into the current Blackboard course, or re-upload the podcast into the current course area on the Video Portal.
Both of these processes are outlined below.
Re-uploading an older podcast for the current year
To do this, follow the steps below:
- Log into the Video Portal and locate the podcast you would like to move.
- To the bottom right of the podcast video, click on the ‘Download’ button and download the podcast onto your computer – it will save as an MP4 file. Note that some browsers may show the video in the browser window, rather than download it when the button is pressed – in this case, you should be able to right-click on the video that is shown and click “Save as” to download the MP4 file.
- Go to the My Videos tab in the Video Portal and upload your podcasts directly into the areas that you have access to. This may include Faculty, School and individual course units. Follow the instructions on the page to upload a podcast and be sure to select the correct area to upload to.
- Once the video has been processed, you will receive an email informing you.
The video below takes you through the above steps.
