Blackboard Learn 9.1 Upgrade
Blackboard Learn 9.1 delivers exciting innovations as well as deep improvements to core capabilities, resulting in a product that is more intuitive, engaging, and focused on instructors and students. These features will be available to faculty beginning on August 10, 2014.
Anonymous & Delegated Grading: provides a more useful, robust option and best practice than has been implemented previously by the “Hide User Names” capability to enable anonymous grading and provide a mechanism for lead instructors to delegate grading.
Significant Figures in Calculated Formula Test Questions: Instructors in STEM disciplines expect precision in the tools that support their pedagogical methods.
Student Preview: provides the capability for an Instructor to see the course exactly how a student would see it. The new Student preview will be replacing the Add Test student tool.
Portfolio: intended primarily as a tool for students to reflect on their own learning or as a tool for assessing student learning.
SafeAssign: enhancements to the SafeAssign service to provide a more seamless integration with native Learn Assignments and updating the SafeAssign Originality Report interface.
Single Course User Participation Report: provides data for a single with a count of the student’s academic contribution within a course. This report provides data necessary to substantiate a student’s academic contribution within a single course.
