The Content Collection in Blackboard contains various areas in which you may store content related to courses.  Access to these areas is primarily for instructors unless otherwise defined for specific folders by owners of those folders.

The following defines the default quotas for each area:

  • My Content:  250 MB
  • Course Content:  250 MB
  • Institution Content:  Varies by folder

To determine the size of a course:

  1. In the course Control Panel, under Content Collection, choose the course folder which uses the course ID for the name.
  2. At the very top of the page in the header area, where you see "Course Content:" followed by the course ID, use the context menu to select "Edit Settings".
  3. Scroll down to Quota Information, where you will see the current size of the course.

Please review the My Content page for considerations regarding the selection of storage locations for various files in Blackboard.

Please keep in mind that files larger than 50 MB, which tend to be audio and video files, may need to be stored externally to Blackboard.  Online@JSU may be able to assist with choosing appropriate locations for storage of audio and video files.  Please contact us at online@jsu.edu.
