To make your public UniTube files available in Blackboard:

  1. Upload your file in UniTube and click on the file icon to view it.
  2. Copy the text in the Embed box.
  3. Open Blackboard, create or edit a new content item, click the HTML editing window (button reads 'HTML' in the text editor) and paste the text.
  4. Click Submit in Blackboard.

To make your hidden UniTube files available in Blackboard:

  1. Click on the File icon in UniTube to view it, and then copy the URL in your browser address bar.
  2. Create a URL content item in Blackboard, give the link a name and paste the address in the URL field.
  3. Click Submit in Blackboard.

Embedding a UniTube file into Blackboard does not necessarily restrict the availability of that item to the students and staff of your Blackboard paper. You still need to define who can view the file in UniTube itself.

Please note that UniTube will not be supported beyond mid-2018. While you can continue to use UniTube until then, you may wish to consider using another media hosting service, such as:

If you need assistance selecting an alternative media host, please contact the IT Service Desk by calling 64 3 479 8888 or 0800 479 888 or email
