Upload a Zip Folder

Blackboard 9.1 calls compressed (zipped) folders "Package Files".

Upload and Unzip Your Files
Step 1

Click Files on the Control Panel and click on the course ID to go to your files area.

Step 2

Hover your cursor over the Upload link in your course files area and click on Upload Package.

Step 3

On the Upload Package screen click the Browse button, navigate to the zip folder you want to upload, select it and then click Open.

Step 4

Do not change the File Encoding setting in the Upload package dialog box.

Step 5

If you are uploading to a files area that contains other files do not check the "system automatically overwrites the existing file with the same name" check box. It is recommended that you create a folder to upload files into to eliminate a possible problem.

Step 6

Click Submit. The files will upload and will be automatically uncompressed.
