The Content Management module integrates seamlessly with the Course Delivery and Community Engagement modules, making up the Blackboard Learn™ platform.  With the Content Management module, your institution will have a complete learning content solution that provides personal, course, institutional, and global content management capabilities for all types of learning content.


Since NWTC licenses the content management system, you can store, share, and publish content. You can store and find content in personal, course, and institution folders in the Content Collection. You can link to these files in different areas in your course. You can store files you upload to your course in the Content Collection and link to them again.

Course Files vs. the Content Collection

Course Files is the file repository available with all Blackboard Learn courses. However, if your institution licenses content management, the Content Collection is the file repository.

The first section in the Control Panel shows where your files are stored. Click Files to expand the section and click the course ID to open Course Files in the content frame.

Institutional Content

After clicking on the Content tab, a left navigation section appears called Content Collection.  In it you see "My Content", "Course Content", "Organization Content", "Institutional Content", and "Library Content".  Today we are interested in "Institutional Content".  Clicking the link displays a variety of folders holding useful assets that can be used during the course creation process.  Some folder are designed for particular departments, while others are available to anyone from the College.  

The Blackboard Visuals might be of particular interest.  It contains a variety of graphic that can be used with folders and items to better identify these parts of the Blackboard shell.
