I would like to start a thread to collect tutorial materials you may produce in the Box View for Blackboard.  For now, there may be some resources available directly form Box.


Just to clarify how we got here, Box acquired Crocodoc to compete with Dropbox and they decided to kill the Crocodoc product.  This affects our Blackboard environments.

EOL: Announcing the New Box View and the EOL of Crocodoc and the Box View API | Box Blog

Bb docs with Jan 15, 2018 deadline: Inline Grading | Blackboard Help


In the process, Box is also killing their own Box View, while the "New Box View" is what will remain.

So, here are a few sources I identified so far, which can help us understand the features:

1. Blackboards's screenshot of Crocodoc and New Box View side by side:

2. Box Developers feature list for New Box View:

So, if you are on Saas or get the CU on your system, please reply and share any screenshots, videos, documents, etc to give others a good start.
