Can I link to material found on sites like YouTube in my Blackboard unit?

Yes provided:

  • the material is online with the permission of the copyright owner. (NB: Extracts from popular songs, movies or TV shows are uploaded without proper authorisation. These are potentially infringing files that should not be streamed, downloaded, linked to or recommended to students.)

It is preferable to show material that is recorded from broadcasts under Part VA licence. If you wish to stream commercial DVDs in BlackBoard, please contact library staff who will assist you in securing copyright permission.
