How can I reduce course size in content collection? (Original)

You are here:
< All Topics

If you are receiving an error message when uploading content to your courses, you most likely have reached your course size limit. You will need to remove large files (after downloading copies to your local device and uploading to Panopto or OneDrive) in your Content Collection in order to reduce the size of your course(s).

Accessing the Content Collection in Blackboard Original Course View:

  1. Enter your Blackboard course
  2. Scroll to toward the bottom of the left-hand menu into the instructor-only Course Management area.
  3. Click Content Collection.
  4. Click the Course ID (e.g. CS_107_1298_Spring2020).

5. Your course files will appear in the middle of the screen.

6. Your course content includes any file you have ever uploaded into the course (e.g. a syllabus, PowerPoint file, etc.) – even files that are no longer in use, imported from another course, or duplicated. The date and time the file was uploaded and the size will appear to the right of the file name, providing information about which is the most current. You can click on the “Size” column header to sort files/folders from largest to smallest.

7. Check the boxes and select “Download Package” to download multiple items to your local device. Once you have downloaded the content you would like to remove, select the same check boxes and select the “Delete” button.
