Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Blackboard was upgraded to Q2 2017 during the winter break. The following are the new features and improvement.
Inline Grading with New Box View
Blackboard now uses a new online grading service – New Box View. New Box View offers similar features for grading online and support more file types.
Instructors can send email reminders from Grade Center columns to students and members of groups who have missing coursework. Students receive a system-generated email that lists the course, coursework, and the due date if included.
Submission receipts enhancements
Students can receive a notification email for each assignment attempt with information about the submission including attached files. Students can also access receipts at any time on the My Grades page in the submissions filter area.
Drag and drop files
When instructors create content items, assignments, and web links, they can drag files from their computers to the "hot spot" in the Attach Files area. Students can also drag files to upload when they submit assignments.
File drag and drop are now supported in the following areas.
Responsive improvements for mobile devices
A number of improvements have been made for users on mobile devices. Improved course menu collapse behavior. More responsive table handling in many interfaces.
