Blackboard (Faculty) - Assignments: Download Assignment Files
This document provides an overview of how to download assignment files submitted by the students.
You may wish to download all of your student files at one time when grading. It is also a good practice to keep copies of student assignments for future reference.

- Click the individual boxes for each student, or if you want to download all the files, click the box to the left of the Name heading to select all. If there is no checkbox next to a student's name, the student did not submit a paper.
- Click Submit.
- From the Download Assignment page, right click on Download assignments now link. From the menu, select "Save target as..." or "Save As..."
This will download and save a .zip file. Save it to your Desktop.
