What do I do when my course has reached its quota?


If your course has an abundance of content or includes sizable files, you may be presented with the following message when trying to upload files:

Action not complete: Adding the selected content to the specified folder causes the folder to exceed its quota.

All courses have a default quota of 250 MB, and when you near or reach this quota, you will be notified. Either way, when your course quota has been reached, you will not be able to upload any further content to your course. You may contact the Technology Help Desk to increase this quota for this individual course. You may also wish to remove large or unneeded files by managing them in your Content Collection. Educational Technology Services encourages you not to upload large media files to your BlackBoard course, and instead use Panopto to stream your course media.
