Mashups? I love them!

I have just found the ‘mashups’ function on Blackboard. Who knew that even existed??! I have struggled in the past trying to ensure reliability on all devices when inserting screencasts into content areas of bb, and even when I managed to insert them, they often seemed to fall over just at the point when they were most needed.

A chance browse showed me the mashups function and now I have been able to link to all the screencasts I have on YouTube with no problem at all. The function is easy and quick to use and it looks neat and professional on the page. I have been able to include them on a general information page for all English Literature students and I have emailed the students and my colleagues to tell them they are there. I have also asked them to let me know if they would like to see any other topics covered. It will be interesting to see what happens next…
