Course Content and Files
You can upload individual files as large as 100 megabytes to Blackboard and there is no limit to the number of individual files that you can upload. For files larger than 100 megabytes — particularly if those files are large videos — contact your school’s local IT support staff. Many schools offer their faculty access to file and video streaming servers specifically designed for streaming large files. You can then link to those files from within your Blackboard course.
For instructions on how to do this, please watch “Adding URLs: Linking to Web Pages and Web Sites, to Documents Stored on the Internet, or to Other Internet Resources.”
