Organize Course Content

Blackboard allows you to create folders which help you organize and sort your course content. Folders make it easier for students to find documents by limiting the amount of scrolling they need to do and by labeling specific content areas.

There are two main ways of using folders to organize your material: content-based and chronological order. An example of content-based organization is creating a folder for all your lecture notes and another for PowerPoint presentations or creating a folder for readings on the attorney-client privilege, another for work-product doctrine and a third for readings on the attorney-client relationship. An example of chronological order is to create a folder for all Week One materials and another for Week Two.
