Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511
The Grade Center is more than just a way to record students' grades. It is a dynamic and interactive tool, allowing instructors to record data, calculate grades and monitor student progress. In the Grade Center, instructors can provide and manage students' grades for a variety of assessments, including assignments, tests, discussion board posts, journals, blogs, and wikis. Faculty can also create grade columns for any activities or requirements that require grading but do not require submission through Blackboard, such as special projects, presentation, participation or attendance. Workshop participants can bring their computer or tablet to gain first-hand experience during the workshop.
Originally from Washington, D.C. but now a tried and true Columbia native, Mitchell West is the director of eLearning Services in the Division of Information Technology. When he isn't managing his amazing team and providing Blackboard support to the awesome faculty here at UofSC, you might find him watching a Washington Nationals game or hanging out with his pets. One of West's favorite quotes is, "Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend; inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." - Groucho Marx.
