You can save and view your lecture videos on your iOS devices.  This is great for when there's no internet connection around, but you still want to view your lectures.

Here's how to do it.

First, get out your laptop or turn on your desktop computer as you can only sync downloaded videos onto an iOS device through iTunes.  Once your computer is running, plug your iOS device into it and start the iTunes application.

Second, using your computer, go into your Blackboard course and onto the Video Lectures page.  Then click the link for "Recorded Online Video Streaming".

You will put in the password to view the weekly lecture links, and then click the link for the weekly lecture you wish to sync.

On the weekly lecture pages you will find the streaming video player (like YouTube), but also if you scroll down the page a bit you will also find links to download the video or audio files.

See these screenshots:  


Now, once you have the desired file downloaded onto your computer you will need to sync it to iTunes.  There are several ways to do this.

We've found this YouTube video shows the easiest (in our opinion) method to sync media to an iOS device.

Please give the SOAEP Help Desk a call or create a Help Desk ticket if you need further assistance.  1-877-248-3145.
