Sharing media within a course

Once a media file resides in your My Media, it can be moved into a course and shared with the other instructors, TAs, and course staff so they may use it within that course.

Media Gallery

Each Blackboard course has a section called Media Gallery that is found under the left side navigation under Control Panel > Course Tools:


Selecting this link opens the Media Gallery.


Placing a media file in the Media Gallery allows others (non-students) to place it in the course.

  2. Click the blue +Add Media button in the upper right. This takes you to your My Media files.
