Blackboard Integration: Adding Media to Your Course


Once your administrator has set up your Blackboard and TechSmith Relay integration, you can share media from TechSmith Relay to Blackboard. Learn how to add TechSmith Relay media to your course and how to report quiz results to your Blackboard Results Center.

Add TechSmith Relay Media to Your Blackboard Course

  1. Select the course you'd like to add media to.

  2. From the course home page, click Content.

  3. Select TechSmith Relay from one of the Content dropdown menus. For this example, "TSCU TechSmith Relay" is shown in the Tools dropdown, but the name of the menu item and where you find it in the Content section are both determined by your administrator, so some variance is likely. Contact your Blackboard Administrator if you have trouble selecting the correct option in this step.

  5. If you'd like TechSmith Relay quiz results to be sent back to the Blackboard Results Center, scroll down to the evaluation section and select Yes for Enable Evaluation and set the number of Points Possible.

    - If there are quiz questions attached to the media, points will be awarded based on the number of correct answers.
    - If there are no quiz questions attached, points will be awarded based on the percentage of video watched.

When students open the assignment they will be able to view the media and complete any quizzes. Once an assignment has been completed, allow up to an hour for complete and accurate data to be synchronized between TechSmith Relay and your course grade book. Visit the video page for detailed analytics and quiz results.
