Embedding or linking to programmes on BoB

BoB screenshotSince we started publicising the availability of the BoB (Box of Broadcasts) service, colleagues have been asking how to include programmes or clips in their module pages on Learn (Moodle). For the moment, the ’embed clip’ feature in BoB is not fully compatible with Learn (it’s currently only working in Firefox) BUT this is not really an issue because you can simply copy and paste the URL of a particular clip or programme on BoB into Learn, just as you would with any other web resource.

When students click on this, they’ll be prompted to log in to BoB (with their usual Lboro account) and once logged in they’ll see the clip.

If you’re a member of staff (or student) at Loughborough, try this, for instance:
