Inline Grading with New Box View

The inline grading tool which allows instructors to add comments and highlights to student assignments in Blackboard will be transitioning from Crocodoc to the New box view on January 3rd from 8am-noon.  The only items affected during this transition will be the ability to annotate and comment on submitted assignments. Inline grading will continue to work in your courses after the transition.

The New Box View offers several improvements over Crocodoc, including improved rendering and expanded support for new file types.
