Folders in Blackboard allow you to organise your files so that students can locate content easily. Lecturers often use folders to group content by week (i.e. Week one, Week two..) or by content type (i.e. Class slides, Assignments, Videos..)


To add a folder to your content area:


1. Select "Build Content" from the content menu at the top of the content area and choose "Content Folder".



2. Give your folder a name.


3. If you want, you can also include some text that will be displayed with the folder name. This could include a further description of the folder’s content (e.g. the date and topic covered shown in the image below) or some guidance for your students related to the content of the folder



4. Click submit to add your folder to the content area.
