Announcement:Calling All Organization Users- Blackboard design wants to hear from you!
A more user/student friendly way t o mark up assignments with equations and/or graphs. The thick sharpie lacks finesse and the post-it notes don't allow sufficient context. Plus they're user-hostile to both grader and gradee.   Failing that, a more streamlined process to download, mark, and upload. The downloading is okay, but it takes 8 mouse…

I am sure this idea has come up before, I hope that it can gain some traction. Much like tests have exceptions, I'd like to see something similar for assignments.   To be able to extend a due date, alter availability, etc. for specific individuals or groups would be as useful as the existing ability to offer test exceptions.
Create the option for the text editor to have the full capabilities it does elsewhere in Learn for students responding to test questions (short answer, essay). Specifically missing right now is the ability to provide file attachments and embed images.

It looks like your login session has expired."   Here are specifics: -Latest OS -Latest Java/Flash - I tried adding bb to exceptions, have cleared cache -Any user… (Show more)
Allow faculty to upload questions from Word document, Google Drive, XLS, CSV, or Content Collection. They would automatically format in the appropriate question type and populate the assessment.
Allow instructors and instructional designers to easily search and discover LTI tools that have been shared by other universities. Tools could range from group assignments to online learning labs. Peer ratings and comments could allow tools to be vetted by the community for quality. Discoverability would be prioritized through robust search and…
