BB Drive

BB Drive is a desktop application available on request that you can install onto your PC which makes dealing with your files on Blackboard easier and more efficient.

When you wish to update a file in Blackboard you no longer need to take a copy, edit the copy, save it, delete the original and upload the copy. Instead you just open, edit and save. This video shows how simple it is.

It is also possible to open your whole course as if it was a network drive, allowing you to drag in new files, move files around, create folders and update files, as demonstrated in this video.

We think that this has the potential to save staff time both when creating and updating their courses. A longer video follows someone through the process of setting up their course.

If you have any questions or would like to use BbDrive please email us at telling us your work computer name and we will have it installed on your work computer. If you wish to use it at home we can send you the exe file.
