With just under 2 months until our next Blackboard Learn upgrade, we thought it might be useful to provide a round-up of some of the key features you might expect to find in the system (as always- this comes with the usual caveat that features will always be released subject to testing!).
We will be upgrading from Service Pack 14 to the October 2014 release. Here are some of the highlights…
Anonymous and Delegated Grading
Instructors can hide student names from submitted assignments for anonymous grading. Instructors can delegate grading to specific users.
Course Messages Notifications
The Course Message Notifications tool gives each course a private and secure system for communication that functions similar to email.
The look and feel of My Grades has been updated. Students now view feedback by clicking View Feedback.
Instructors can view their course exactly as a student does by using a student account the system generates for them.
If you are interested in any of the features, or would like to find out more, as usual, please get in touch with the Learning Technology Team (firstname.lastname@example.org)
