Adding a Mediasite Mashup in a Thread Post

Issue/Question

How can I create a Mediasite Mashup in a Discussion Board thread post?

Environment

  • Blackboard
    • Discussion Board
      • Instructors

Cause

The Mashup feature in Blackboard allows the viewing and sharing of media content from external websites. 

Resolution

Students are not able to create a Mashup for Mediasite Presentations or Mediasite Catalogs in discussion board posts. Although the Mediasite options will appear, this feature is strictly for instructor use.
  1. When creating a discussion board thread post, in the Message box toolbar, click  (show more).
  2. Click Mashups and a dropdown menu will appear:
    1. Choose Mediasite Presentations if you want to add a single presentation.
    2. Choose Mediasite Catalogs if you want to add a catalog.
  3. Type the name of the Mediasite content in search field.
     Note: This should appear in a new window. If it does not, you may need to adjust your popup blocker settings.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. Fill the  check box or  radio button next to the content you are wanting to add.
  6. Click Submit.
