Blackboard Learn Videos

Blackboard creates videos to help students and instructors learn to use Blackboard. We create new videos when new features are introduced to Learn. We update existing videos when user interactions change for a feature or function.

These videos are available in English only.

What Happened to the On Demand Learning Center?

Blackboard has updated the Learn videos to MP4 format and is serving them from YouTube. All of the videos are embedded in the relevant help topics, but you can browse our playlists to access the videos directly. We changed the format of the On Demand Learning Center for many reasons:

  • Videos that are served from YouTube are more accessible and play on mobile devices. Now you can watch a video on your iPad while working in your course. 
  • You can leave comments for us and rate our videos on YouTube.
  • You can include our videos in your own YouTube playlists.

The links to the existing Flash format* Learn 9.1 videos that appeared on the On Demand Learning Center remain live, and you can access them using the original direct link and from the Video Archives page in help. 

*Flash video will not play on all devices.

What Do I Need to Do?

If you have added links to existing On Demand videos in your training materials and websites, they will not break. However, each On Demand landing page redirects to a role specific video topic in help for instructors and students.

To ensure that you have the latest versions of the tutorials, review our videos on YouTube and update your links as time allows.
