Upload to Course Content

Files can be uploaded directly to the Course Content using the Add Content menu or the drag and drop menu. It is also possible to use containers such as Learning Modules, folders and Documents to organise files see the guide Content Containers in Blackboard Learn Ultra for more details.

There are a few ways you can upload files to an Ultra course see our guide Presenting Files to Students for further options.

Upload from Add Content Menu

Step 1: Go to the Course Content point where you would like to upload a file.

Step 2: Hover over the dividing line until a plus sign icon appears click on the plus sign icon.

Step 3: When the add content menu appears select Upload.

Step 4: The file manager will open.

From here you can select the file or files you wish to upload. Blackboard Learn Ultra supports most file types but please check the Blackboard Help page Supported File Types if you wish to check.

Once you have selected the files you can click Open to upload them on to the Course Content at the point were you clicked on the add content menu.

Drag and Drop

It is possible to drag and drop files straight from the file manger on to the Course Content area.

Step 1. Open the file manager

Step 2. Select the files you wish to add to the Course Content, drag them on to the Course Content at the position you require.

Currently it is not possible to drag and drop folders, although this ability will be coming in the May 2023 update.

The files will appear in the Course Content.
