Did you know your Blackboard course section has a size limit? When the size of your course section reaches 2GB, you will start receiving error messages that will prohibit you from uploading any additional content to your course section.
To check the size of your course section.
- Access your course and navigate to the Control Panel menu. Select Packages and Utilities.
- Then select Course Copy.
- Navigate to the File Attachments section and select Copy links and copies of content (include entire course home folder). Click the Calculate Size button.
- This will show you the size of your course (along with a warning message if your course is over the size limit of 2GB).
The reason most courses reach the size limit is due to video files. Instead of uploading video files directly to Blackboard, be sure to upload your video to Yuja. You can then embed or share the link to the video in your course.
After you've transferred your videos to Yuja, be sure to delete the large files from your Blackboard course section.
