Adding Media to Blackboard

(Note: If you are still hosting video or audio on the older "Media Manager," be aware that UVM has transitioned to the newer system, UVM Streaming Media. The Media Manager will eventually be closed.)

UVM Streaming Media is the current platform for hosting your media and embedding it in Blackboard. It is a "true" streaming delivery method, similar to YouTube.

Why not just upload media into Blackboard?
Since media files are large, they should not be uploaded into to a course; doing so can make your course backups less stable and sometimes they can't be exported. Instead, media should be uploaded to an external media site, such as UVM Streaming Media or YouTube and then linked in Blackboard.
