Blackboard Collaborate Original - Using File Transfer (UW-Madison)
How to use the File Transfer tool in Blackboard Collaborate
(Note: This is for Blackboard Collaborate Original only, if you are looking for help or information on Collaborate Ultra, go here)
- File transfer allows you to upload and distribute files to all web conference attendees. To upload a file to the file transfer library, click on file>open>File for Transfer.
This opens the standard file browser of all the files on your computer. Simply select the file you want and hit “open.” This will then automatically open the File Transfer Library. All files in the library are accessible to all web conference participants. Using the icons at the top you can save the file, remove the file, remind participants that they can download the file or add a new file.
(Note: After you log out of a session, all files are automatically deleted from the File Transfer Library. If you try to upload a file format that is incompatible with the Whiteboard it will automatically activate the file transfer feature and ask users if they want to download the file.)
