Sharing Dropbox Files from Ensemble in Blackboard

With a dropbox in Ensemble Video, it is possible for students to submit audio and video files directly to their instructor's Media Library. Instructors may then create a Playlist for these submissions to be viewable in a Blackboard Learn course.

Create a playlist for student dropbox submissions

  1. Click on the Playlists tab to start creating a playlist for student submissions. 
  2. Click on the +Add button for a new playlist.
  3. You can name the playlist the title of the assignment. (Example: Presentation 1 Student Submissions)
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click on the Media Library tab on the left side of the screen. 
  6. To associate individual student submissions with the newly created playlist, click the Publish button under one of the student dropbox submissions.
  7. Associate the file with the appropriate Playlist using the "Default Category" checkboxes. 
  8. Click Publish.

Publishing to Blackboard

Once the student dropbox submission has been associated with a playlist and published, the playlist can be added to your Blackboard Learn course.

  1. Log into your Blackboard course and navigate to the content area where you want to share the playlist. 
  2. Hover over Build Content and select Ensemble Video Chooser 5.0.
  3. Select the Choose Playlist tab.
  4. Enter the name of the Playlist in the Search Media box that you want to display in Blackboard, or simply choose from your Playlists below.
  5. Select the Playlist you want by clicking on the green “+”. 
  6. Click Save.

Please note: You may also request to have student dropbox submissions Auto-publish to a playlist by opening a ticket at Media Server (Ensemble Video).
