Blackboard Learn Summer Update

Starting June 1, 2019, the following updates will be available in Blackboard Learn:

Download Instructor Comments on Graded Assignments

Instructors and students will appreciate that you can now download graded assignments in Blackboard Learn.  Comments are numbered and will appear at the end of the downloaded paper.

To download a marked up assignment:

  • Instructors can download their comments on student papers from the Assignment Details page where they entered the grade.
  • Students can download the instructor’s comments from My Grades, which also takes them to the Assignment Details page.

Assignment Details page with arrow pointing to Download Annotated PDF

As a reminder, this only applies to student submissions using MS Word or PDF. Students using Google Docs, can download as a Word or PDF before submitting to the assignment.

Attendance Tool

Blackboard Learn now has an Attendance tool. For each session, you mark students as present, late, absent or excused.  Check out this video demo to get a brief overview.

In our initial testing, the Technology & Learning Program found that this tool is best suited for smaller, in-person classes. Please contact us if you are interested in using it.
