11. Insert a Kaltura Video using the Text Editor


You are able to add Kaltura Videos in your Learn.UQ (Blackboard) course site through two different methods: via Content Area and via the Text Editor (this section of the online workshop). All Kaltura Videos can be uploaded anywhere there is a Visual Textbox Editor such as Announcements, Items, Discussion Board, Blogs, Journals, Wikis and Assignments. The process of adding the Kaltura Video is different than a Kaltura Video Quiz and the steps should be followed carefully.

For more information, refer to the Insert a video into a Visual Textbox Editor guide.
