Blackboard was updated at the end of December. Some of the changes that you will see in your Blackboard site are:
New Inline Editor – This new inline editor from box allows you to comment and highlight text but does not have drawing tools. For more information please see our updated page and the Blackboard Support site for steps on how to grade in the new editor. If you need more advanced editing tools for papers your students can submit their work in a google doc or you can download papers and use track changes in Microsoft word.
Campus Pack Blogs, Journals and Wikis have been phased out of Blackboard. We have created a new page with the different activities that faculty used the blogs, wikis and journals for and have given different alternatives that can be used for the activities.
LaunchPad by Macmillian – If you are using a Macmillian text in your class we have connected Blackboard to Macmillian’s Launchpad service to help with importing resources and assessments from Macmillian.
