The following instructions apply to most common file types (PDF, HTML, images, Word documents and PowerPoint presentations in their original format, etc). For information on uploading PowerPoint presentations saved as web pages, please click here

  1. In the Build tab of Blackboard Vista, open “Course Content” in the “Course Tools” Menu.
  2. Open the “Add File” dropdown menu and click “Browse for Files” to choose a file on your computer.
  3. Once you have chosen a file, click “OK” to upload the item. Your file should now be listed under “Course Content” in your Blackboard Vista home page.

Editing files once they are uploaded is not possible in Blackboard Vista.  The file must be edited outside Blackboard Vista and re-added. If it is already displayed somewhere on the site it is best to delete it from that location before re-adding it to the site.

If you encounter difficulties or would like further information, please contact
