Find out about the latest updates in Blackboard Instructor. Administrators can get more details in the Blackboard Instructor Release Notes.
The Blackboard Instructor app helps instructors and graders easily identify courses where they need to grade student submissions. They can review, annotate, and grade submissions and quickly publish the grades back to students.
The initial release of the app's grading feature is available for assignments in Original courses only. At this time, your institution needs Blackboard Learn SaaS. Users need devices running Android 4.2+ or iOS 9+.
When instructors add tool links to Original courses, such as grades or announcements, users see the tool in the app instead of on a responsive web browser page.
- Enhanced support for viewing PDFs in the app
- Improved pinch and zoom support for embedded documents in iFrames
- YouTube videos can be viewed full-screen
