How to Add Course Content to Blackboard 


Blackboard allows you to create and organize instructional material for student access. Items can include folders, documents, multimedia, or links. 

  1. Log in to Blackboard and access your course.
  2. Click the plus sign where you want to add content and select Create.
  3. Under Course Content Items, choose Document.
  4. Enter a document name. This document will serve as your page to insert and build instructional material.
  5. Adjust the visibility and availability settings by selecting the drop-down menu in the upper right corner.
  6. Choose an option in the center of the screen to begin inserting content.

Add Content – add on-screen text, attach files/images/videos, insert YouTube videos, and insert hyperlinks. The content editor allows you to insert text, URL links, images, or videos.
Upload from Computer – upload an item saved locally on your computer
Upload from Cloud Storage – upload an item stored in a cloud storage platform

  1. To continue adding content, click the plus sign in the center of the screen.

IDDC Pro Tip: Utilize the content editor box to provide specific actions you want students to take with the
content (read, review, watch, etc.). This enhances clarity within your course by assembling course
elements in an easy to locate and understand manner.
