🙌 Grade Center Clean Up
Instructors can now clean up their Gradebooks by deleting multiple columns at once in Full Grade Center > Manage > Column Organization.
Note: Columns tied to Blackboard assessments when deleted from this view will permanently remove all attempt and grade data but not the column. To remove the column, instructors must delete the assessment itself.
✅ Submission Receipts for Students
Students now receive a notification email for each assignment attempt they make. The notification comes with information about the submission including attached files. Students can access receipts at any time from My Grades by clicking Submitted in the submissions filter area.
🎤 Additional Drag-and-Drop Locations
Drag-and-drop has been added to the Content Collection, Content Editor, Blank Page, Blogs, and Journals. If the browser allows, users can drag a folder of files and the files will each upload individually.
🚀 Improved Launch Experience for LTI's
LTI links now open in a lightbox within the course, rather than directing users to a new window or tab. This loads tools within the same window from where they are launched, creating a more consistent and contained workflow for students.
🎯 Discussion Board "Replies to Me"
Keeping up with large Discussion Board forums is easier by giving participants a count and filter to just look at new replies from others to posts made by the participant.
