Adding YouTube videos to your Blackboard course is a good way to provide engaging content. For example, you can illustrate difficult concepts and ideas, showcase different viewpoints on an issue, show news reports, or demonstrate laboratory procedures.
You could create a ‘talking head’ video to provide an introduction to your course or programme, or to particular modules in your course. It is more personal than a written introduction, and puts a face to the name.
