Files you, at some point, uploaded into My Content, to show them in your Portfolio for example, can be downloaded again, of course. Even now we are starting to migrate to Moodle from Blackboard this feature can come in very handy to keep your most important documents safe. This article describes how you can download these items.
What is it?
The Content System / The Content Collection is the place in Blackboard to store documents. They were uploaded by a user to serve a given purpose. Sometimes it is just for storage and to link to them from a portfolio but there are a number of other reasons one can think of. They always are stored in a part of the Content Collection called My Content. Uploaded documents by an Instructor are always stored in a container dedicated to a specific course. Only course members have access to that container. This article is about My Content.
It is obvious that uploaded documents to My Content also can be downloaded. This is necessary, for instance, when the original version of the document (stored on your PC) has been damaged and you want to replace that original version with the copy from My Content.
How does it work?
Although it is technically possible to upload a downloaded package into a new Blackboard environment, for example when you are migrating content, it should not be done for Security reasons. A downloaded package is best unwrapped on a local system and files and folders are the processed individually.
- At this moment there are no known limitations.
