The simplest and most effective means of providing students with a link to a recording of a live lecture conducted through Adobe Connect is by providing a web link in Blackboard.

   Firstly, make sure that you have edit mode turned on. You can learn more about edit mode here.

Move your mouse over the blue “Build Content” menu at the top of the content area and select “Web Link”.

This will take you to the “Create Web Link” page.

Under “Name”, give the link a name. Your item’s name should ideally imply the information in it to the student - i.e.: “Week 1 Lecture Recording”.

Under “URL”, provide the URL for the Adobe Connect recording. You can learn more about how to get the URL for an Adobe Connect recording here).

Under “Text”, you can, if you wish, include some text that will be displayed with the web link. You could, for instance, briefly list what was covered in the Connect recording.

Under “Attachments”, you can attach any files you want to the Web Link.

Click the “Browse my Computer” button and upload files from your machine. The file name will appear beneath the “Attach Files” area.

If you want to remove a file you have added, you can click “Do not attach” to the far-right of that file.

Under “Standard Options”, you can specify if and when students can see particular content.

   You can learn more about the Standard Options feature here.

When you are satisfied with all of your choices, press the “submit” button.
