Blackboard Upgrade

Blackboard Learn Q4 2016 Release

City Colleges of Chicago is upgrading Blackboard Learn 9.1 to Q4 2016 Release on May 20, 2017. In this upgrade, many existing features have been improved and some exciting new features added to make the user experience more accessible and efficient. The following is a quick overview of the tools that are now available.
  

  
  

New Responsive Theme

The new look of Blackboard is specifically designed to be mobile-friendly. It resizes based on screen size for use on smaller devices like smartphones, and the Submit button is always at the bottom of the screen instead of the bottom of the page (so there is less scrolling). The new design also includes new icons for most content and assessments, to match the new look.


Drag and Drop


When instructors create content items, assignments, and web links, they can drag files from their computers to the "hot spot" in the Attach Files area. Students can also drag files to upload when they submit assignments.             

   
 
  

Assignment Submission Receipts

Administrators and instructors can keep track of all student submissions, regardless of whether the attempt or assignment is deleted or the submission history is changed. A submission receipt is captured at the time of submission and includes information such as attached file information, date, time, etc. This feature provides evidence for academic disputes, giving students assurance about their work.         

A receipt is generated for each group member when a student submits on behalf of the group, and the anonymous state of an assignment is respected. For assignments with multiple attempts, students receive a different number for each submission.            

You can access all of your students' confirmation numbers from the Grade Center. Access the Reports menu and select Submission Receipts.            

    
  
  

Assignment Reminders

Faculty will be able to easily send system-generated reminders for missing coursework in the Grade Center to students and members of groups who have not submitted work. Students will receive a system-generated email that lists the course, coursework, and the due date (if included).
