The third option on the Add Content menu is Upload.


When you click on Upload from the add content menu 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.
