Upload Files & Folders via Web Folder (WebDAV)

You can create a Web Folder via the Set up Web Folder link within the Content Collection. Once you have created the Web Folder it will appear in your Windows Explorer and will look & behave like a shared drive.

Set up a Webfolder:

  • You need to do this only once.
  • Navigate to your subject/unit folder within the content collection.
  • Click on Setup web folder (Windows) or set up shared Location ( Mac OS)
  • You will be given a set of instructions on screen.
  • Follow the instructions.


To access your Web Folder once it has been set up:
  • Click on the Windows Explorer icon on the task bar or click the Windows button and Computer.
  • Double click on the name of the Web Folder that was set up to open it.
  • If you are not already logged on to Blackboard in Internet Explorer you will be asked to log in details.
  • You should now see all the subfolders.
  • You can now work the same way as you work with files and folders normally on a shared drive.
  • You can create folders, copy, move or delete files in the usual way but certain actions (like copy, move or delete) may require additional permissions.
