Getting Started


Installing Zoom

Install Zoom on your Device


Enabling Zoom in your Blackboard Course

Provide yourself (and your students) with a quick access link in the Lefthand navigational Menu.

1. Open the Blackboard course where you would like to add Zoom.
2. Hover over + in the navigation menu and choose Tool Link.
3. Complete the Tool Link options:
4. Name: Enter the title you would like displayed for the Zoom link in your course navigation.
5. Type: Select Zoom Meeting.
6. Available to users: Check this option so that students can see the link to the Zoom meetings as well.


Sharing your Local Recording - File Save to your Device

When you record a Zoom meeting and choose 'Local recording' the file will be saved to your computer. By default, all recordings will be placed in a Zoom folder found in the following file path on these devices.

• PC: C:\Users\User Name\Documents\Zoom
• Mac: Mac: /Users/User Name/Documents/Zoom

To share it in Blackboard you must upload it to Yuja, then post a link in a Blackboard course. These are the same steps you can currently use to post audio or video in your Blackboard course.

1. Go to a content area (for example Course Documents or Assignments) in your Blackboard course.
2. Make sure Edit Mode in the upper right is set to ON.
3. Put your cursor on Build Content and select Yuja Media Chooser (Option under "Mashups").
4. Click on Browse and choose the video file to upload from your computer.
5. Select Start Upload. You must remain on this page until the upload is complete.
6. Once uploaded, select video and click on Insert Videos.
7. Edit the Title, Description, or Tags if desired.
8. Click Submit.
9. Your recording file will begin transcoding/processing on the server. Depending on its length and size, it might take 2-20 minutes to be available for playback.
