Blackboard Outage, Jan. 3, 2018, 12a.m. – 10a.m., Inline Grading Changes

Wednesday, December 27, 2017 - 16:30

On Wednesday, January 3, 2018, 12a.m. – 10a.m. updates will be made to Blackboard, and Blackboard will be completely unavailable during this time. This update will also include a transition away from an unsupported assignment inline grading tool to a supported version. There are significant features lost, including the ability to view comments beside the paper, the ability to download a document including comments, and the ability to draw directly on the submitted document.  For more information on the changes see Upcoming Changes to Inline Grading of Assignments in Blackboard. For an overview of the new tool, visit Blackboard’s YouTube video at  https://youtu.be/fnUg6BO0v2A .
