Improving 'My Grades' poor user design

Do any institutions provide an alternative mechanism by which students can view their marks and feedback in Blackboard without having to go into My Grades?

At my institution we use Bb Learn 9.1 and students submit work to both Blackboard Assignments and Turnitin (integrated). When they use My Grades to access their grades and feedback, whilst the mark is prominently displayed it can be unclear how to find and access feedback. There are several design features that are inconsistent in the way students are notified that there is feedback or it isn't immediately apparent that there could be feedback from the My Grades page.

I'd be interested to know if any other institutions have built their own solution within Blackboard for students to see their marks and feedback more clearly.
