Tech Tip: Blackboard Quota Exceeded

As we get closer to the summer semester, Information Technology wants to remind all instructors that Blackboard courses are limited to 500 MB in size.

To avoid receiving a quota exceeded error when adding anything to your course, we recommend uploading content to a third party site like Google Drive, Panopto, or YouTube where storage space is unlimited.

Once a file or video is saved to one of those resources, you can then share a link of the file or video to your Blackboard course saving lots of valuable space.

Below you will find information about the Quota Exceeded error, how to share a Google Drive document to your Blackboard course and how to upload videos to a third party site and share to Blackboard.
