Faculty - Adding a Folder to a Blackboard Course


Each of the content areas of Blackboard can be organized using folders. Folders allow you to categorize resources by topic, date, or type to reduce information overload. 


1. Select the content area where you want to add a folder
(ex. Course Materials)
2. Hover over Build Content
3. Click Content Folder

4. Type a name for the folder in the Name field

Note: The Name field is a required entry. Enter a message if desired in the Text window. Notice in the Content Editor that you have various editing features similar to MS Word.

5. If you want your students to view this folder, select the Yes radio button in the Permit Users to View this Content field  
6. If you want to track student access to this folder, select the Yes radio button in the Track Number of Views field  
7. If you want to display this folder for a set date/time, enter the information in the Display After and Display Until fields in the Select Date and Time Restrictions area  
8. Click the Submit button  


Here is a video that demonstrates how to create a content folder in Blackboard.
