We upgraded to Blackboard Learn™ 9.1 April 2014 on 12/27/2014.
New Portfolio: Seamlessly import course assignments and personal artifacts into the rebuilt, user-friendly portfolio. You can also easily share snapshots to showcase achievements or use for assessment purposes.
Improved SafeAssign Integration: We’ve enhanced the SafeAssign service to deeply integrate with native Blackboard Learn assignments and inline grading, bringing plagiarism prevention into core instructor and student workflows. Instead of being a separate content type, SafeAssign is now simply a checkbox on any assignment. SafeAssign also handles multiple attempts and attachments, drafts, and group submissions.
We’ve also streamlined and enhanced the SafeAssign Originality Report. Along with some UI changes, the originality report contains more information and has a modern, user-friendly interface.
Student Preview: Quickly view and validate the design of your course content and course behaviors from the perspective of a student. You no longer need to waste time creating and managing test accounts.
Anonymous and Delegated Grading: Grade anonymously and assign grading responsibilities to other assistants, TAs, or reviewers in large courses.
