This page contains information about creating a Mashup as a content item in an Illinois Compass 2g course site.
Flickr Photo, SlideShare Presentation, and YouTube Video can be searched and added to a Content area.
Mashups can be displayed in the following ways:
The System Administrator can disable individual Mashups or all Mashups. If a Mashup is not available, contact the Technology Services Help Desk at email@example.com to determine its status. Mashups are often disabled to comply with institutional rules that govern online teaching and learning.
When finished, the Mashup appears in the folder or content area where it was created. If necessary, use the action link for the Mashup item to set Adaptive Release rules, add metadata, or track the number of views.
If the Mashup does not appear or displays an error after initially appearing, it is possible that the URL has changed or the item was deleted from Flickr, Slideshare, or YouTube.
PLEASE NOTE: You may be unable to play existing YouTube Mashup links and to upload and embed YouTube videos using YouTube Mashup or Video Everywhere. The uploaded video can be found on youtube.com, but searching for it in the applicable building block returns videos directing you to https://youtube.com/devicesupport.
