Providing Feedback to Students Using Blackboard Annotate is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.
Blackboard’s inline grading feature just got a lot easier to use. New Box View has been replaced with Blackboard Annotate. When you go to grade an assignment or a discussion forum, you will see the new Blackboard Annotate feature. You will be able to draw comments, make edit marks, type comments and more with this new feature. Participants will learn about the many new options to provide meaningful feedback to your students.
In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.
If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.
With over 40 years of experience at UofSC, Chris Brown has been studying instructional technology and higher education for many years now. Although she has using technology to teach technology for 28+ years, she began using Blackboard in 1998 when UofSC first acquired the tool, and then became the director of Academic Services, the group that supported Blackboard, in 2001. Brown retired in 2015, but she's continuing to work part-time because working with faculty and technology is one of her favorite past-times.
Elvin Boone started working in the Thomas Cooper Library as a student attending UofSC and, really, never left. He studied English Literature. The UofSC Blackboard team scooped him up in 2019, and he's been managing projects, giving workshops and generally trying to stay out of trouble ever since.
