Adding a File to Your Blackboard Course

This work instruction shows users how to add files within content areas in Blackboard. Files, much like items, are used to convey information to students. This document assumes that the user is logged into Blackboard, inside of a course shell, and in a content area.

2. Hover the mouse over the Build Content button.

The Build Content menu displays.

3. Click the File link.

The Create File screen displays.

4. In the Name field, enter a name for the file. This is a required field.

5. Click the Browse My Computer button and locate and select a file to be uploaded.

6. From the File Options section, ensure that the Open in New Window radio button is set to Yes.

7. By default it is set to No, so you must click to select the Yes radio button.

8. If desired, modify any of the three settings under the Standard Options section.
