Adding a Chapter to Videos
- Go to Rollins MediaSpace or Blackboard. If you go through Blackboard, skip to Step 4.
- On the top right-hand corner, click Guest and select Login.
- Sign in with your BlackBoard/FoxLink credentials.
- NOTE: Using your email (@rollins.edu) will not work. Only input your user ID.
- Click My Media (On Blackboard, My Media is located on the left-hand side of the Blackboard “Rollins” homepage).
- If you do not have any videos and would like to upload a new file, click Add New on the top-right hand corner.
- Select Media Upload.
- Click Choose a file to upload and select your file.
- Once upload is completed, click Go to My Media.
- On the video you want to add chapters to, click Edit.
- Click Timeline.
- Identify where the chapter will be inserted by clicking or dragging the red bar on the timeline. As reference, the video
thumbnail will show you what is playing at that second.
- Once done, click the Create a new Chapter button on the left of the timeline.
- A blue ribbon end should appear on top of the red bar.
- To add another chapter, move the red bar to another place in the timeline and click Create a new Chapter.
- OPTIONAL: To change the thumbnail of the chapter, click Upload under Chapter Thumbnail. (This is the image cover of the chapter.)
- Under Chapter Information, there are several options:
- Chapter title: This is the name of your chapter.
- Chapter description: A sort blurb on what the chapter will be about.
- Timestamp: For a more accurate pinpoint of when your chapter starts, use the arrows (up or down) to change it. Alternatively, you can also type it in.
- Tags: Add related tags to help searching for the chapter easier.
- Click Save when finished.
- The Delete Chapter button will only be accessible after saving. This is because you can only delete a chapter once it has been created (i.e. saved).
- Click on View in Player.
- Click on the Navigation (three horizontal lines) icon on the top right-hand corner of your video. (It will only appear when the video is not playing.)
- The chapters you created will show up in the sidebar. You can select the chapter by clicking on the thumbnail, or search for the chapter (with tags) by using the search bar tool.
