Collecting and Grading Assignments Online

    Save yourself time by using the Knowledge Assignment Tool! This session will discuss the benefits of using the Assignment Tool such as ease of creating assignments, to the flexibility of grading online papers. Instructors will be able to easily manage assignment grades, as well as send students assignment feedback quickly (both in text and audio) directly through this course tool. We'll also look at setting up assignent collection through Safe Assign, which provides the added benefit of an originality report for plagiarism detection onto the assignment tool framework. The focus of this session will be on how to set up assignments, load files, view submitted papers, and return feedback to students.

Introducing the New Blackboard Collaborate

    Blackboard is in the process of modernizing their virtual classroom tool, Collaborate. In its current state, this new Collaborate, called "Collaborate with Ultra Experience", trades some features (such as polls and break-out rooms) for user-friendliness and a modern feel. In this session, we'll look at the new Collaborate experience, covering both the pros and cons, and help you decide whether switching over to the new Collaborate is right for you.
