Assignments in Blackboard

June 17th, 2014 by Brantley McKeithan

Blackboard has an assignment tool that can be used to create graded assignments. This tool also creates a corresponding Grade Center column.

The assignment tool provides students with a link, that when clicked, allows them to attach a document and type in comments. These items will be sent to the Grade Center, where instructors will retrieve and grade them.
