Blackboard Course Size Limit Policy
In order to manage course size efficiently, the CUNY Central Blackboard Steering Committee has implemented a course size limit policy: all course data in Blackboard will be limited to a tiered storage size limit:
- Tier 1: 750 MB (Default)
- Tier 2: 1.5 GB (Faculty must fill out the Course Size Limit Increase Request Form with detailed justification)
- Tier 3: 3 GB (Faculty must fill out the Course Size Limit Increase Request Form with detailed justification)
Faculty members will receive a warning when copying or importing a course that is larger than the default course size limit. You can find instructions for checking the current size of any course and for reducing the course size below.
To request an increase in course size please attach the Course Size Limit Increase Form to an e-mail and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org (with “Course Size Limit Increase Request” in the subject field); however, please note that there is no guarantee that CUNY Central will approve all requests. CUNY indicates that after they have made the final decision, requests will take 24 to 48 hours to complete. If you have any questions about your course size, please contact the Help Desk at 646-312-1010.
