'How to' guides

Video: recording, uploading, removing, myMEDIA

There are several ways of recording video (lectures, presentations, introductions etc.) using the hardware and software you already have access to at SDU.


myMEDIA is a repository in Blackboard where you can store the videos. You can then publish your videos to or embed them directly in your Blackboard courses.

Setting up your lecture, practice session or lesson in Blackboard

We recommend making your video lectures available via Blackboard’s discussion board. In that way, your
students will have the possibility to ask questions relating to your video lectures. You can also pose questions to your students to engage them in active learning.


This guide shows how to set up your lesson in Blackboard, so that students get a good overview of the different activities you have planned for them. In this way, it will be easier for them to engage.
