The current inline grading service ("Crocodoc") that allows instructors to view and annotate student assignments while grading them in Blackboard will be discontinued by the vendor on Jan. 15, 2018.
Blackboard is replacing Crocodoc with the "New Box View" inline grading service in assignments. On December 21-23, ITS plans to upgrade Blackboard to include the "New Box View" so that inline grading functionality remains available to instructors. Details about the Blackboard upgrade schedule and other new features will be announced soon.
More information about inline grading is available on the Blackboard Inline Grading page. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
