Uploading a document

Overview
              Blackboard accepts files in multiple formats including PDF, Excel,
              PowerPoint and Word.

              File attachments may be added to different places in a course, for
              example, to an Item, an Assignment, or a File in a Learning Unit.

              Users will open the file by clicking a link to the file that appears in
              the unit. After selecting a file to attach, users may enter a name for
              the link to the file. This name will appear to users, instead of the
              name of the document. For example, users would see “Biology
              Syllabus” instead of syllabus_bio_101.doc.


This demonstration will show how to attach a document to an item.
From within a Content Area of a site, select the EDIT VIEW link.




Select the add Item link.
