Blackboard Learn

Some key information and links for faculty starting to use Blackboard Learn

Adding Images to your Exam


  • Only use established image formats for the web: JPG, GIF or PNG.
  • Do not use spaces in the file name of the image file.

Adding Video to your Exam


  • For maximum compatibility, use a modern video format, such as MP4.
  • Your video must be less than 100 Mb in size.
  • If your video is too large, contact Academic Computing & Technology to arrange to have your video uploaded into our dedicated media streaming service, Panopto.
