  • Out of storage space in your Bb Learn course? Find out what you need to know as you prepare your Fall 2021 courses.

    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.

  • Making videos available in your Bb Learn courses? Are you following best practice?

    Videos and Bb Learn

    While Blackboard (Bb) Learn has an option to upload videos directly into a course, this practice is highly discouraged as it causes very large courses and ultimately raises the cost of making courseware available to students. The Bb Learn system was never meant to be a video streaming service. Panopto, on the other hand, is designed to do exactly that and also offers a number of integrated features to complement your videos. Learn more about making videos available through your Bb Learn course using Panopto and how to delete videos you've already directly uploaded into your Bb Learn course. (There's more to it than just deleting the link in your content area.)
