Updates and Announcements
Starting with courses created for the Summer 2015 semester, CUNY CIS has instituted a size limit for courses on Blackboard. The growth of online learning across the university has necessitated that we take proactive steps to manage our server usage. All courses will have an upper size limit of 750 MB, which may be raised on a case-by-case basis. Please note that the course size limit will only affect new courses and does not include student uploaded materials in Assignments, Discussion Boards, Wikis, etc. Instructors will receive a warning if they attempt to upload additional content, or copy or import a course that is larger than the default course size limit. For more information, please contact your campus Blackboard Administrator.
