How do I embed a Flash video into a Bb Learn page?


Let's assume you have a Flash video file stored on a server somewhere, and you want to embed the video into a Bb Learn page. For example, here's a Bb Learn tutorial:

http://ondemand.blackboard.com/r91/movies/bb91_student_edit_my_institution_page_layout.swf

Edit or build a new content page in Bb Learn and click on the HTML editor.

Copy and paste the following HTML code, but replace the values inside the { } with the appropriate values. Typical values for width and height of a video are 640 and 480.

<center>

  <div class="mediaContainer_1">

    <object data="{Movie URL}" width="{Movie Width}" height="{Movie Hight}" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">

       <param name="movie" value="{Movie URL}"></param>

       <param name="quality" value="high"></param>

       <param name="pluginurl" value="http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer"></param>

       <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>

    </object>

  </div>

</center>
