You can upload multiple files in Blackboard in any content section (although it is recommended you add files to “Learning Materials” or “Resources”) using the “Item” option.

An Item lets you upload multiple files of any type which students can download.

   Firstly, make sure that you have edit mode turned on. You can learn more about edit mode here.

Move your mouse over the blue “Build Content” menu at the top of the content area and select “Item”.

This will take you to the “Create Item” page.

Under “Name”, give the item a name. Your item’s name should ideally imply the information in the document to the student - i.e.: “Week 1 Learning Material”.

Under “Text”, you can, if you wish, include some text that will be displayed with the Item. You could, for instance, include a further description of the content.

Under “Attachments”, click the “Browse my Computer” button and upload files from your machine.

The file name will appear beneath the “Attach Files” area. If you want to remove a file you have added, you can click “Do not attach” to the far-right of that file.

If you have uploaded one file, you can simply add another by clicking the “Browse my Computer” button again.

Under “Standard Options”, you can specify if and when students can see particular content

   You can learn more about the Standard Options feature here.

When you are satisfied with all of your choices, press the “submit” button.
