How do I download course materials from Blackboard?

Answer

The method for downloading material from Blackboard depends on the type of file and the way that the file was added to Blackboard. Here are some tips for downloading from Blackboard:

Assignments 

Chances are you probably have copies of your submitted assignments in your files, but, if you don’t, then you may wish to download your submitted assignments. Also, your instructor might have returned assignments with comments via Blackboard. Either way, if your assignment was submitted or returned as an attachment, you can download the files. Go to the part of Blackboard where you submitted the assignment (Assignments, SafeAssign, or Mail), and download the file from there.

If you submitted your assignment via RDP email, then your assignment will not be available in Blackboard; check your RDP email Inbox and Sent folders for these assignments.

PDFs

PDF documents may open within Blackboard or in a separate window. To download a PDF from Blackboard, use the save icon on the PDF (not in the web browser).

PowerPoint

Instructors may have added class slides to Blackboard in one of two ways:

  1. As a PowerPoint file which opens within Blackboard or within a new window. In this case, right-click and save the document from its link in Blackboard.
  2. As a PDF version of the PowerPoint, that needs to be downloaded as a PDF file.

Class Notes 

Instructors may have added class notes to Blackboard in one of two ways:

  1. As a Word document which opens within Blackboard or within a new window. In this case, right-click and save the document from its link in Blackboard.
  2. As PDF version of a Word document, that needs to be downloaded as a PDF file.

Attachments from Blackboard Mail

To save attachments from Mail Messages in Blackboard, you can:

  1. open your Mail message
  2. select View Attachments
  3. select the attachments that you wish to save and choose Save to Folder
  4. select My Computer and save your files
