Recently, while consulting a faculty member about using Blackboard, I discovered linked folders instead of the recommended linked files in Content Areas.
So What? Well, if the folder or folders are located within the File tool, then any or all of the students enrolled in the course can download course content from within the File tool! To prove it, I logged in as stu_mcussen and the following video shows what I can see and do!
- Use an item and attach a zipped downloadable file for the students to extract.
- Create a folder and within the folder create individual files for each student example
