Essential for students
This is absolutely essential - we need a way of getting these annotations out of Blackboard/Box. This is the number one priority for the Box changes.
Students NEED the ability to do this to help them construct learning. Faculty members also download their annotations to prove immediate and in-depth feedback to students for accreditation, tenure & promotion, evidence of quality instruction, peer review, etc.
This is perhaps the most important of all of these Box requests.
1. Staff often want to download annotated work - e.g. for quality assurance and record-keeping purposes, for sending to external examiners
2. Students are encouraged to reflect and build on the feedback they have received - being able to download their work with the marker's annotations was a really useful tool to enable this
3. We're trying to encourage online marking, but I fear that the inability to download marked up papers will lead many instructors to revert to offline marking using Track Changes - or even reverting to marking hard copy.
Essential part of the whole process!! The comments really do not do much good if they cannot be downloaded with the document.
We are talking about downloading documents with annotations VISIBLE, right? If the little blue icons are the only things that download, it won't help.
The lack of this and other what I consider basic functionality just boggles my mind.
Yes, please! This is an essential feature for us.
This is a critical requirement in using annotations.
Yes, please. This essential feature should not have been neglected in the first place. How could Box team not put end-users (specifically students and instructors) and their requirements in the centre of the transition from Crocodoc to New Box inline grading service? If this is how they operate, then it's worrisome. Blackboard Ops Blackboard Support
Please also consider the screen reader access for downloaded comments
It's crucial for both teachers and students.
Absolutely YES! An essential feature, number one for student satisfaction and making the grader feedback useful to them!
I've added my vote, but if anyone from Blackboard is reading this you may want to consider that my vote represents approximately 33 000 users, and we're far from largest user base represented on this page. This isn't 'oh, it might be a good idea to do this if we're not busy' kind of situation.
It is imperative for us. Without it, we are going to have to ask all of our academics to use only Turnitin.
This is critical requirement for us too and have highlighted so a couple of months ago. I can't believe this was left out.
Yes this is an important feature for our users too.
Obviously, this is essential.
Yes please. This is considered the number one priority.
I agree that this definitely a number one priority. It is important for Box to understand that there is still a lot of value in a printed copy of a file for make corrections and working with students. It is also can be helpful to have all comments on a single printed page. The idea should be to reflect what has always worked best for peer reviewing and marking up papers which is being able to see all of the copy at once. In prior times, we used to write handwritten comments on hand written papers which is an effective practice. The computer and therefore box should be modeling an approach that makes it simpler.
It's obvious from the comments on this thread that we all consider it to be problematic that Blackboard went ahead with a required deployment of New Box when a mission-critical function had been removed from the new product (e.g., the ability to download a document with instructor feedback). I'm sure there were behind the scenes considerations regarding the switch from Crocodoc to New Box, but the bottom line is: The product was not ready, and yet Bb moved ahead anyway instead of ensuring it was brought up to par before setting a hard rollout date. How could Bb elicit feedback (and/or hands-on testing) from those of us who provide direct support to faculty and students, so we can kick the tires and identify issues like this earlier on?
If you need to make just one improvement to the Box View Integration, this would be it for us. Please make it happen.
