Blackboard Open LMS allows users to overwrite files that have been previously uploaded in the system. If any aliases of the file exist, the changes are reflected all alias instances.

Upload a file to overwrite

  1. Go to the area where the original file is located.
    For example, select Edit > Edit Settings for a resource on the course front page.
  2. In the Files box, select Add or drag and drop a file with the exact same name.

    Source files and aliases can be recognized by the thumbnail.

  3. In the confirmation pop-up window, select Overwrite.
