Course Files – Downloading


Course Files is a repository of all the files in your Blackboard paper. Files uploaded to the Files area of the Control Panel will not appear in any content areas until you put them there. Any files uploaded to a content area i.e. Course Documents will automatically be included in the Files areas in Control Panel. It also allows you to quickly and easily download all the files in your paper at once.
