The Content Collection in Blackboard Learn
The Blackboard Content Collection is an area of the Blackboard server where files are stored. A unique characteristic of the Content Collection is that the files “saved” and/or “stored” on the server are accessible via the Internet. If you were to upload a file, e.g., a syllabus or a paper that you are writing to the content collection, you would have access to those documents as long as you have access to the Internet. These files can be linked into courses and/or shared by the owner with other users on the system.
Instructors use the Content Collection to store, share, and publish content within personal user folders, course folders, and Institution Folders throughout Courses in Blackboard. In Blackboard Content Collection, you can
• Store content for multiple courses you teach.
• Share content across courses and with other users.
• Students may have access to store or share files.
The Content Collection contains multiple repositories for users and courses to organize and share their content. Detailed information about the about the structure of the Content Collection is addressed in Blackboard Help. If you’d like an in-person consultation on how to do it, you can contact us to ask.
