How many times have you found yourself uploading content as an attachment in Blackboard just to realize that you either made a mistake or the content itself has changed? The only solution is to remove the attachment, update the document, and then reattach it within your course. Fortunately, there is a better way! Teachers can embed PowerPoint presentations, Forms, and Sways in Blackboard from their OneDrive accounts and update them as needed without having to load them again when edited. Once they are embedded in the course, any changes made from OneDrive will automatically be reflected in Blackboard. Students can view the files in Blackboard or download them to their computer for editing their own copy.
For detailed instructions to embed content in Blackboard, visit the Tech Classes site and sign in with your CPSB username and password. Click on Help Videos & Handouts, then click the + to expand the menu to select Content Areas. Here, you'll find PDF handouts and video tutorials that share how to embed video from OneDrive, Forms, PowerPoint presentations, Sways, and Flipgrid video content.
