Link & Embed VAST Videos

VAST: Academic Video Online is a multidisciplinary collection of over 20,000 streaming videos. VAST videos can be integrated into courseware like Blackboard and other websites in two ways, via linking or embedding.

Tips for Blackboard

  • Copy the embed code from the video (see Link and Embed Best Practices).
  • Create a content item in Blackboard.
  • Toggle the editor to HTML mode and paste the embed code.

Note: Your embedded video may not display immediately. It takes a few seconds for the video to show after you embed it (this depends on the speed of your internet connection). If after a few minutes, you still do not get a video, try the process again.
