Managing Large Files

File Sizes, Load, and Content Considerations

Large files can be uploaded to a variety of institutionally-supported hosting platforms. Visit the Sharing Large Files wiki page for details on how to manage large files  , particularly large video files.

Disk space on Blackboard is shared among all files uploaded to Blackboard, including student submissions, so it is limited and finite. Blackboard is not designed for hosting and streaming media files as it affects the performance of the system. Platforms such as uVIew, Onedrive, and Microsoft Stream will host and convert your file to the appropriate format. Microsoft Stream will also automatically generate caption files.
