vertical line divider There may be times when your instructor will ask you to send him/her "file attachments" via e-mail. Such files may be image files, word-processed documents (e.g. essays produced in Word), Powerpoint slide shows, Excel spreadsheets, or other types of documents needed for grading.

Once your instructor has received your document file, she/he may grade it by inserting comments within your work, then email the corrected document back to you.

Attaching in Blackboard
To attach files using Sakai's Message and Forums tools, click the Add Attachments button, browse to find your file(s), then continue to return to Post Message (Forums) or Send (Message).

attaching in OutlookAttaching files using various applications, e.g. email utilities, is just as easy. All are similar in operation. In these, you will typically see an attach icon, often a paper clip (as seen at the right in the UNC email system you will be using, Exchange/Outlook WebApp). In UNC email, you can add multiple attachments, just as you can do in Sakai.
