  • (2020-12-03) Raymond Xu: This consistently works for me on us.bbcollab.com. My only gripe is that it would be more convenient if the playback speed had a dropdown option, if possible. As of right now, if the speed is on 2x and you want to set it to 1.75x, you have to keep clicking it until it goes from 2x to 0.25x to 0.5x and up to 1.75x, rather than just opening a dropdown and choosing whichever speed is most suitable.
  • (2020-12-02) nate andersen: Takes a little bit of work to make the button appear, but this is an absolute lifesaver. It's almost impossible to watch recorded lectures without this, this should have been a core functionality in blackboard
  • (2020-11-26) Xiaoni Z: greatttttt!!!! I love online courses!
  • (2020-11-24) Vanila Latte: Sometimes it doesn't work. When is does work, it is truly amazing!! Thank you so much!!!
  • (2020-11-17) Marlon: For me, the speed options were a part of the playback bar. It was between the volume and the skip forward buttons. Looks good, works well, definitely recommend
  • (2020-11-17) Taylor Whitt: So far, this works for me. I pinned it on chrome (by pressing the puzzle piece next to your URL bar), closed out of my lectures and reopened them, and a speed option appeared on the bottom right of my lecture between the fast forward button and the volume button. The extension logo glows purple when you are on bb or watching a lecture on bb collaborate. Thank you!
  • (2020-11-16) nikita malik: This is a lifesaver, works perfectly!
  • (2020-11-08) Kwok Chun: It works! Thanks a lot!
  • (2020-11-05) Michael Aderinkola: I FINALLY GOT IT TO WORK!!! After you download it, on the right side of your screen make sure you have it pin to your chrome interface. Navigate to right side of screen and click the Chrome Extension (looks like a block to puzzle) > Click BlackBoard Playback Speed pin (should be grey) > After you click the pin it should turn blue > An Icon for Blackboard Playback Speed pin should appear on top right side of your screen > Refresh Screen > Open blackboard recording page > Play video Icon should light up in purple!
  • (2020-11-03) m. dergunov: Bastante útil
  • (2020-11-03) Venessa Powell: This is AWESOME!!!!! Thank you. It did not work at first but I reloaded the page and it worked perfectly.
  • (2020-10-31) Emiel Veldman: Updated, now it works for me too!
  • (2020-10-27) Álvaro Jiménez Martín: It looks like only works for https://us.bbcollaborate.com/* but I'm using httpss://eu.bbcollaborate.com/* Please update the extension to support any bbcollaborate region
  • (2020-10-24) FTH ogur: When are you planning to add eu.bbcollab.com? It would be really helpful
  • (2020-10-20) Owen: Took me a while to figure out that removing "lti" from the link of the recording I was given (us-lti.bbcollab.com) to get it working for me. Thank you for the extension.
  • (2020-10-19) Nazanin Ijad: It's not working for me, maybe because I'm accessing from Canada?
  • (2020-10-16) Spoofz: It works exactly how it supposed to! But sometimes when you watch recorded lectures it may not show up the first few times. I'd recommend closing out the lecture tab then opening it again if that issue occurs. Other than that it works
  • (2020-10-12) Princess Pat: Please add the EU version :/ this is a great app idea but needs to be available across the globe
  • (2020-10-11) Allen Chang: It's cancerous that blackboard recordings don't have a feature implemented by any video streaming platform that isn't from 2002. Even zoom has it. I don't really know how to code extensions, but it's probably like 100 lines of code that has a simple UI that says "make.video.faster(input)" when user presses the 2x button. I love the extension, it implements something that all video platforms should have, and it's so simple that it can be just an extension. Seriously, blackboard is trash for not having this already
  • (2020-10-08) Andrew Pearson: Great idea, but does not work in Canada. Please add ca.bbcollab.com
  • (2020-10-05) Daniel Rodrigues: does not work, absolutely nothing shows up, no button, no panel, nothing
  • (2020-10-05) Daisy Claire: it's super nice when it does work, but sometimes the little options will pop up and sometimes not when i try to watch a recorded lecture. i've tried refreshing, watching for a little while, and nothing seems to work to get it to pop up if it didn't immediately. definitely a bummer, but like i said, its super useful and nice when it does work
  • (2020-10-05) Bhuvaneswari Mahendran: Did not work for me at all! :( Please add the asian region too !
  • (2020-10-04) Ash Carter: Does not work for ca.bbcollab.com
  • (2020-10-04) Grace Chiu: Please add compatibility to Australia - au.bbcollab.com
  • (2020-10-02) Marcus Young: Please, for the love of all that exists, add support for the EU and/or UK (no idea if Brexit will affect things here). This seemed like an absolute blessing until I saw that it can't work outside of the US!
  • (2020-09-30) Jeen den Boer: When are you planning to add eu.bbcollab.com? It would be really helpful :)
  • (2020-09-30) Mikol Tsopnang: Have literally no idea how to use. Nothing happened when I added the extension.
  • (2020-09-29) Eric Hua: Can you add ca.bbcollab.com?
  • (2020-09-28) B: This is going to save me SO much time! It works great! It adds a little button on the bottom right of the blackboard screen, with the rest of the controls.
  • (2020-09-25) Atia Najjar: I downloaded it and nothing happened. So speed button was added. If someone could help, I would be more than happy to improve the rating
  • (2020-09-25) Genesis Rodriguez: Recently started using this extension since all of my lecture recordings are on Blackboard Collaborate. Works perfectly! Thank you for saving me so much time! - CUNY Student
  • (2020-09-25) Rahmah Hussein: This is such a convenient extension to have.
  • (2020-09-23) epcbox: Very useful!
  • (2020-09-21) Coder Typist: The extension works! Thank you so much. This saves so much time.
  • (2020-09-17) Safa Rahman: The extension currently does not work on https://ca.bbcollab.com I believe. Hopefully the developer can make it such that the extension works on this site as well!
  • (2020-09-02) Catland Creator: This extension currently only works if you are watching on us.bbcollab.com, that is to say, only on the US site. It doesn't work on the EU site. Hopefully developer will let it activate on more regions.
  • (2020-08-27) Hannah Ismail: Works perfectly and saves me time!
