Course Size Limits

Blackboard course sites are limited to 6 GB of storage. Under most circumstances, this should be plenty of storage for a course. 

If you receive a message that you can no longer add content to your course site because you have reached or exceeded your quota, contact the Office of Digital Education for assistance in reducing your course's storage footprint.  

If you are concerned you might exceed your course's quota, consider employing the following steps as you add content: 

  • Upload video content to Microsoft Stream or YouTube, then link to or embed the videos in your course site
  • Save extremely large files (such as PowerPoint presentations with extremely high-resolution images or zipped programming files with a large number of assets) to OneDrive, then post links to these files in your course site
