At Southern New Hampshire University College of Online and Continuing Education, we use a one-to-many model for all of our courses. We have in the past attempted to use the Content Collection as a means to store our course documents. However, the Blackboard tool did not suit the needs of the one-to-many model. Recently, we have been able to start using the Content Collection, as Blackboard's updated tool provides us with a viable option. It provides us with many great benefits, such as:
- Saving storage space
- Allowing the user to overwrite the file once, with the update reflected in the parent and its children
- Allowing the user to update the file from anywhere
