Video Everywhere (webcam tool) is a feature of the content editor Video Everywhere Icon in Blackboard. First you must have a Google account that is registered on YouTube.  Next, to record video, you must have a webcam that can record both video and audio either attached, or in many cases, built-in to your computer.   

This feature provides the ability for both instructors and students to:

  • Record a video and have it seamlessly embedded in course materials, interactions, and feedback through the content editor.
  • Reuse previously recorded videos by choosing one from your video "library" in YouTube.
