VidGrid allows Blackboard users to capture videos directly from the LMS. With the integration, users are automatically created and logged in based on their Blackboard credentials. Creators can record, upload, and search their library for content. Videos can be inserted anywhere that the Content Market can be accessed. 

Additionally, auto-graded video quizzes, student recording assignments, and a full-app portal view can be configured.
