Blackboard (Faculty) - Cannot Export/Import Course on a MAC
This document provides directions to change the Safari automatic unzip settings which prevent Blackboard exports/imports from working properly on a MAC.
Safari browser automatically unzips downloaded files that appear to be "safe," including export files from Blackboard. This is a problem when you try to import the package into a new Blackboard course because the file must remain zipped for the import to work.
To change this setting:
- Open Safari
- Click on the Safari menu.
- Choose Preferences from the dropdown list.
- Click on the General tab.
- Uncheck the box “Open ‘Safe’ files after downloading.”
