Blackboard – Adding Images to a Course

You can add images to course content almost anywhere there is a content/text editor available.  This includes Content Areas, Discussion Boards, and Tests/Quizzes. To add an image when editing content,

  1. Click on the plus button (+) in the content editor.
  2. Click “Insert Local Files” to select a file from your computer.
  3. Browse to, select the image, and click “Open”
  4. The image will have been embedded in the text editor, and you can now add alternative text (an image title or a brief description for visually impaired users) to the image. This is done by right-clicking on the image and selecting “Image…”, then entering a brief description in the “Alternative Description” box, and clicking Save.
  5. If the image is quite large, you can re-size it by dragging the boxes on it’s corners
  6. Click Submit
