VBrick’s VEMS Portal supports the distribution of video for educators who use the popular Moodle and Blackboard learning management systems. The current release of VEMS has the ability to share a URL for an on demand video and the soon-to-be-released 5.1 version will support sharing of live video URLs.
To add a VEMS video resource to a Moodle page, simply copy the VEMS URL that is found by clicking the “Info” icon, and use the Moodle HTML editor to add the link.
For Blackboard, simply click the “Web Links” tool, choose “Create Web Link” and copy the same VEMS URL into the form.
This proceedure can be used to add other video types to VEMS as well. In this example a generic web page can be added to VEMS as a VOD URL with a type of “Document”. When the user clicks on the link in the VEMS Asset Library it will open a new window and load the web page content in that window.
VBrick will be developing additional ways to link and embed video into portals like SharePoint. Please let us know how you would like to see video used with your portal.
