How to Post an Office Mix to Blackboard

Before posting to Blackboard, you need to upload your Mix to the web. View this tutorial “How to Upload Mix.”

  1. Go to https://mix.office.com/, and click “Sign In.”
  2. Select “Sign in with a work or school account.”
  3. Enter your UH Office 365 account.  For example, xxxx@cougarnet.uh.edu
  4. Click the “My Mixes” link at the top of the page.
  5. Find the Mix you want to share and click the “Details” link beneath the title.
  6. By default, the permissions for your Mix will be set to “Private”. You need to change that so others can view your Mix on the Web. Slide the permissions dialogue to the right to select the level of permissions. We suggest choosing “Unlisted”. For more information on permission levels, view this article: http://www.mixforteachers.com/decide-who-can-watch-your-mix.html
  7. After selecting your permission levels, click “Save”.
  8. Once your permissions are saved, copy the URL link below the Mix Preview.
  9. You can now add this link to your Blackboard course. For a tutorial on adding links, view this article: Create a web link in Blackboard.
