Cross campus video permissions in Stream

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
  • These instructions are relevant where equivalent versions of University of Reading UK modules are taught at University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM).
  • Follow these instructions to enable students to view videos at the other campus.
  • Wherever possible, enrol all relevant staff on the Blackboard courses for the module at each campus.

Be aware: Sharing a Stream video link does not make it viewable. The video can only be viewed by Blackboard course members, if you add it to the module’s associated Stream Group.

Permissions need to be added to the video in Stream to allow students studying on the module to view it.
This can only be done by the video owner. (The person who uploaded the video to Stream and can see it under ‘My Contents’.)

To do this:

1. Enrol the video owner onto the Blackboard module with the role of Instructor, Teaching Assistant with Stream or Course Builder with Stream.

  • This makes the video creator an ‘Owner’ in the Stream Group that corresponds with the Blackboard module.
  • Wait 24 hours for the Stream Group enrolment to be updated with the Blackboard enrolment.

Which role should I choose?

  • Use ‘Teaching Assistant with Stream’ to prevent the person appearing to students in the list of module Instructors.
  • Use ‘Course Builder with Stream’ to prevent the person appearing to students in the list of module Instructors, and prevent access to the Grade Centre.

2. The video owner adds the Stream Group to the video permissions.

  • You can only add permissions to one video at a time.

3. Make the videos available in the Blackboard module.

Once permissions have been added:

  • The videos appear in the module playlist in the ‘Microsoft Stream’ section of the module.
  • You can embed and add links to individual videos anywhere in the module.
  • Anyone who can view the video in Stream and is an Instructor, Teaching Assistant or Course Builder on the Blackboard module can embed a video.
