    blackboard is a system colleges use like moodel -- i was just wondering if you make a button to make it easy to embed a jot form in blackboard - much like you have buttons for wordpress and others -- right now i use iframes

    btw I'd also liek to know iftehre is an easy way for my students to embed content in a form for example i teach video i'd want them to upload to youtube then embed tehir video iin my form.

    also what about the possibility of a way for my students to upload tehir video not to my dropbox but to my amazon s3 account? 


    sorry you seemed so open to ideas i thought i'd throw them all back at ya.

    Please confirm this and we will send a feature request to our back end team. Please be noted that creating a feature request does not ensure that it will get implemented. It completely depends upon the feasibility and priority of our back end team.

    Unfortunately we cannot answer multiple questions in one thread. I would suggest you to please create new thread for the question related to video upload and we will surely attend to it. That would help us to give your proper assistance and at the same time it would help other user with having the same problem.

    Thank you!

    We always recommend iframe embedding on different platforms even on Wordpress so iframe embed code should work for you. Wordpress is very rampant on the market, and we have thousands of request about WP Plugin so our developers has created a plugin. I believed this is the first request about blackboard so we have to note it for now.

    We will also attend your other questions on the separate thread.
