This week’s Blackboard New Feature is Inline grading. Inline grading provides faculty a new perspective for accepting assignments electronically, grading and returning student’s work. This long awaited feature allows instructors to view, annotate and provide feedback to student submitted assignments right in the web browser without leaving Blackboard. This video explores some of the annotation tools available now in Blackboard for instructors.

WebEx training sessions

eLearning will be offering several WebEx training sessions throughout the months of March, April and May and invites all faculty to participate and discover the potential of this tool to enhance classroom communications and increase student success.
