Blackboard Updated for Spring 2015 semester

Over January 5th and 6th, TLT did an update to Blackboard. The changes are not major updates, and you will probably not notice these updates. There are just a few added features. Below are a list of additions with links for more details about each feature.

  • Student Preview – Now you have the ability to log in as a student to see the course as a student. Click here for more info.
  • Portfolio Improvements- Portfolios are now accessed from the global navigation and have a new authoring canvas. Instructors can create portfolio assignments. Click here for more info.
  • Grading: Anonymous Grading - Instructors can hide student names from submitted assignments for anonymous grading. Click here for more info.
  • Grading: Delegated Grading - Instructors can delegate grading to specific users. Click here for more info.
  • Online Attendance Tool– This is a module we have recently installed for those that would like to track attendance in Blackboard. Click here for more info.
NOTE: IE Users: You may experience some graphical layout issues when you log into Blackboard. If so, you will need to add https://bb.kumc.edu as a trusted site. Click here to watch a video on how to do this.

Please contact TLT at 913-588-7107 or tlt@kumc.edu if you experience and issues with Blackboard.
