Uploading a package/zip file to Course Files

Upload a zip file that will then automatically be unzipped, so that the files are then available for you to manually add to content areas.

Please note that if you are intending to use this tool to simply upload multiple files in one go, it is suggested that you use the new drag and drop tool instead. It will save you having to create a ZIP file before uploading and is generally just easier to use.

If you already have your content as ZIPs and wish to upload them so that they are then unzipped into the Content Collection then please continue.
  1. Screnshot of the content collection button in the control panelBrowse to the Content Collection area of your module using the Control Panel.
  2. Screenshot of the upload a zip package option in the content collectionIn the Content Collection area roll over Upload and click on Upload Zip Package from the two options that appear.
  3. On the next page, click Browse and then select the ZIP file from your computer. Blackboard will now automatically unpackage your ZIP file into the folder that you uploaded it to. You may wish to try this out first with a small number of files so that you can see exactly how the tool behaves.
