SlideShare and YouTube Mash-ups now available in MyBeckett

Following the upgrade to MyBeckett, the SlideShare and YouTube mash up tools are now working correctly again.

They were deprecated by Blackboard following changes made by Google which affected interoperability. Both tools have now been re-built to work with Google’s new programming interface.

To insert a Video or SlideShare please follow our Embedding a YouTube guide.

We have been informed by our supplier that there is a known issue with playing a YouTube video in full screen from within a module page and they are working to resolved this asap. In the meantime, there is a workaround if required:

  1. Click the Share arrow in the upper-right corner of the player
  2. Click the YouTube link to open the page in YouTube in a separate window
  3. Click on the full screen button
