File Uploads and Submissions
Files can be uploaded, transferred, and submitted in a few basic ways.
Submit via E-mail
Most e-mail programs allow you to attach files to e-mail messages. You may encounter the following problems:
Sending Failure: If your attachment exceeds the system's limit size, sending may fail. To fix this:
- Reduce your file size either by saving the file as a compressed archive, like a ZIP file.
- If you are sending multiple files, send them one at a time.
Corrupted files: Corrupted files occur when the e-mail program modifies the file. For example, Outlook may change an attachment from its original format to .dat format. To correct this:
- Have the person sending the e-mails use plain text formatting.
- Use the free download software at http://www.biblet.freeserve.co.uk/ to convert the .dat file
Upload via Blackboard
If an instructor assigns a project via the Blackboard "Assignment" feature, you may upload directly to Blackboard. Visit the Blackboard help site for more information.
