Adding Media to Your Brightspace Course


If your administrator has set up the Brightspace LMS integration, you can add media to your course without logging into TechSmith Relay. Follow the tutorial below to see how it's done.

Once a Brightspace Administrator has setup the TechSmith Relay LTI integration, you'll be able to add content from your TechSmith Relay library to a course without ever leaving the Brightspace LMS. Use the steps below to add media to your Brightspace course and have TechSmith Relay report viewer data back to your course gradebook.  

Add a TechSmith Relay Activity to Your Brightspace Course

  1. Log into Brightspace and select the course where you'd like to add TechSmith Relay media.

    Option B: Add an entire folder of media (including any subfolders) by clicking the Add Folder button.

    Note: No grade data will be reported to the Brightspace gradebook if an entire folder of media is selected. For more information on adding folders to your course, including frequently asked questions, see this support article.
  6. Your media is now linked to your course activity. When a student opens the activity, they will be able to watch the video and complete any quizzes.

    Once an assignment has been completed, allow up to one hour for complete and accurate data to be synchronized between TechSmith Relay and the Brightspace gradebook.

Grade Reporting

  • If there are TechSmith Relay quiz questions in the video, points will be awarded based on the percentage of correct answers.
  • If there are no quiz questions, points will be awarded based on the percentage of the video watched. Example: A student watches 80% of the TechSmith Relay video. TechSmith Relay reports a score of 80/100 to the Brightspace gradebook.
  • If you select an entire folder of media, no grade data will be reported.
  • Any score automatically reported by TechSmith Relay can later be manually overwritten in the gradebook by the course instructor.
