There are several issues to consider before uploading video content to an online course: video format, file size, destination, and copyright infringement.
We do not recommending uploading video directly to Blackboard. Video files are inherently large and require specialized servers to provide an optimal experience for students to view the videos.
Instead of uploading the video file directly, we recommend using Kaltura to post video files. Kaltura videos can be public, private to only NIU faculty, staff, and students, or limited to only the students in your course. Kaltura also optimizes the videos for streaming and mobile viewing.
