The ilos + Blackboard Building Block allows faculty to embed an ilos video without ever leaving the Blackboard LMS.
See this video for a walk through on installing the ilos Blackboard Building Block. Please take note of Step 6 in the written directions below as this step is not included in the video.
Step 1: Retrieve your Consumer Key from the ilos Account Settings > Integrations.
Step 2: Open the Github URL: https://github.com/ilosvideos/ilosB2 > Select the build/libs folder > Download the ilos B2 file.
Step 3: Go to your Blackboard System Admin > Building Blocks > Installed Tools > Upload Building Block. Upload the ilos B2 file. Submit > Approve.
Step 4: Return to the Blackboard Installed Tools page and find the ilos Building Block. Go into its settings and click Configure Building Block Settings. Enter your Consumer Key and the Shared secret. Submit.
Step 5: Check the ilos Building Block System Settings to ensure the Server URL is app.ilosvideos.com and the API URL is api.ilosvideos.com. Perform a test configuration to make sure the connection is OK.
Step 6: From your System Admin Panel, go to Tools and Utilities > Tools > ilos Building Block. Turn the Availability on for all three tool types. Apply to both new and existing courses.
Step 7: Embed a video in Blackboard anywhere that offers a "Media Mashup." Just click ilos videos and search for the video you'd like to embed. Once you've selected the video, hit Submit. (To play back the video, make sure Edit Mode is off.)
