Use the information section to give your List  or item a title and description.

Optional Files

Optional you can add additional files like PDFs or PPTs below the list items.

Media Selection

Video material is stored in repositories. You will only see repositories that you are authorized to use.

The content available per repositories is already restricted by the blackboard administrator.

Search Criteria

Add criteria to show only a subset of available recordings (you can also leave the criteria blank to include all videos). Use the international date format (example: 1999-12-31) when using date criteria. It is also possible to use a special date value ${today.minus.N} where N is a positive number; this signifies a number of days in the past relative to the day when someone clicks on this item.

Example: `publication date < ("before") ${today.minus.7}` will daily generate a new list with recordings that are at that time at lease one week old.

Now you can add search criteria. The criteria behave like AND queries and are added to the criteria already defined in the repository definitions.

The lists with search fields and values are dynamic and retrieved automatically from the Presentations 2Go Video server.

Smart filters

In addition to literal values you can also use variables in your search definition. These variables will be replaces by real values at the time (and in the context) where the search is executed. The supported variables are:

${course.title}                        title of the course
${course.id}                        the course id; for example INTP01.2013-2014.1a
${course.short}                        the short course id; for example INTP01
${course.year}                        the year, if available in course id; example 2013-2014
${course.period}                        the period, if available in the course id; example 1a
${course.yearWithPeriod}                combination of year and period; example 2013-2014.1a
${today}                                today's date (remember: at the time the search runs!)
${today.minus.N}                        where N is a positive number; days in the past from today
