Many courses at the University require the use of Title IX information and many instructors prefer to have the content in their course even if it is not required. This page will guide you through the process of loading the information into your course as well as downloading it to your computer if you need to save it or print it out. It is possible to load the content to your course without having to save it to your computer as demonstrated in the section Linking to a Course via the Content Collection.
Linking to a Course via the Content Collection
Login to Blackboard and open your course that is using the Title IX content.
In your course menu on the left, click the + icon to add a new Content Area.
Label it Title IX Content, check the box next to Available to Users, and click Submit.
Click the Title IX Content menu item that was just created to bring up the blank content page. You may notice a dotted gray box next to the menu item, that just means you haven't loaded the content yet.
On your content page, click Build Content and then Item in the drop down menu.
On the Create Item page, type the name and description you want to provide for the file.
Scroll down a bit to the ATTACHMENTS section and click Browse Content Collection.
This will load the Content Collection menu. Click Browse on the left of the top navigation bar.
In the dropdown that appears, click Institution.
You will now see the Title IX content that is available for you to add to your course. Click the Names of the folders to navigate to the file you want to use. When you find the file you want, select the check box next to the file name to select the file then click Submit.
You should now see the file listed under the ATTACHMENTS section of your course content item. Set your STANDARD OPTIONS settings as you desire, then scroll to the top or bottom of the page and click Submit.
Once the content page loads, you should now see your Title IX Content loaded in your content section.

Login to Blackboard and access the Content Collection one of the following ways:
from the Content Collection Tab under your name in the top right of the window
from the Content Collection MenuItem under the Course Management section of the course menu

You will then be able to click on the folder names to access the Title IX content.
