    Bb Learn Course Quota

    Since COVID-19, usage of Bb Learn has grown significantly, which is great! However, we have exceeded our allotted storage limit by over threefold and are now subject to additional storage expenses. Bb Learn is paid for by Student Technology Fees, so it is important to keep our courses as clean and efficient as possible. Therefore, a 'Course Quota', set to a 1 GB limit, was implemented on 4/23/2021, starting with the creation of Fall 2021 Bb Learn courses. Please keep this in mind as you prepare to copy Bb Learn courses from prior semesters into your Fall 2021 courses. Learn more on how to check your course sizefactors that impact course sizewhat happens if your course size reaches the 1 GB limit, and how to fix the problem.  PLEASE NOTE: This does not impact existing courses in use prior to April 23, 2021.
