ITS and Blackboard recommend that you stop using Internet Explorer with this eCampus update. Blackboard has indicated it will not resolve issues reported with that browser and recommends using Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
When the May 9 upgrade is finished:
- Instructors and students can access Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox and Box to place content directly from these cloud services into their course.
- Instructors can grade assignments using the Blackboard Instructor app.
- Instructors can grant permission to teaching assistants to reconcile grades. The option “This grader will have access to reconcile grades” appears when the instructor enables delegated grading.
- Students can download certain file types (DOC, DOCX, PDF) with annotations as an annotated PDF after their submission has been graded by the instructor. Instructors can download the file as annotated pdf as well.
If the upgrade is completed ahead of schedule, we will release the system for use. Follow @WVUITServices or “like” WVU Information Technology on Facebook for the fastest updates.
