Please note that students are currently unable to embed content in myLesley. This is a known issue with Blackboard. In the meantime, students will need to share a link to their content (ex VoiceThread).
You may embed HTML content in myLesley anywhere where you see the content/text editor. To do so:
Locate the HTML button in the content/text editor (third row, second from the left).
This will open the HTML Code View. Paste your code into the code view window and click Update.
Once you click Update you will be brought back to the text/content editor. You will now see a yellow box where your content has been embedded. This is normal and means that your content is there.
Make any other changes to your item. Once you are done click the Submit button at the bottom of the page.
Please note that in order for your embedded content to play in myLesley you may need to change any http in your code to https. This will ensure that it will play inside myLesley's secure connection.
For example the following embed code will NOT play correctly in myLesley:
<iframe width="480" height="270" src="http://voicethread.com/app/player/?threadId=2659997" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Instead, you mush change the http in the code to https:
<iframe width="480" height="270" src="https://voicethread.com/app/player/?threadId=2659997" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Due to security restrictions in Chrome, microphone and webcam permissions may not function correctly with embedded media. Instead, you will be prompted to open the item in a new tab in order to record audio/video (ex VoiceThread comments).
