TechSmith Relay Tool


The TechSmith Relay tool is useful for creating videos and video quizzes within your course. Video quizzes will automatically add the students grade into the grade book. The instructions below will show you how to add a video to a content area, and how to change the settings so grades will automatically be added to the grade book.

  • Locate the content area within your course that you want to put your video into
  • Hover over tools 
  • Click TechSmith Relay
  • Enter a name for your video
  • (Optional) If your video has a built in quiz and you want student scores to be entered into the Blackboard Grade book, select the enable evaluation option
    • If you selected the option above choose the amount of points you want the quiz to be worth
    • Enter a due date and time
    • Set your date and time restrictions if needed
  • Click submit
  • Now click on the link you just created
  • Choose a video from your TechSmith Relay Library that you want to associate with this link
  • Click add media next to the video you wish to add
  • Your video has now been added to the course
