Adding Content and Resources

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 especially designed for streaming large files.  You can then link to those files from within your Blackboard course.
