New My Blackboard

A completely new, modern user experience in Blackboard Learn that consolidates critical information from all your Courses and Organizations as well as your learning network. The new tools in My Blackboard – Profile, Posts, Updates, My Grades – were developed to meet the needs of today’s active learner, and educators benefit too.

New Global Navigation Menu

Always present in the top right corner, the new navigation menu is the entry point to My Blackboard and also provides one-click access to your Courses, Settings, and Help.

New Text Course Notifications

Students can now receive automated text notifications for their courses, for example when there’s a new course announcement or an assignment is due or needs grading. Stay updated anytime, anywhere.

Improved Content Editor

The new Content Editor vastly improves the user experience for entering text, pasting content from Microsoft Word, and adding content to all areas of Blackboard Learn. Simply bring your course materials to life with the newly improved Content Editor.

Item Analysis

Educators can now easily refine their assessments by evaluating the quality of each question and that question’s ability to discriminate between students who understand the material and those who do not.  Ineffective questions can be easily identified and then quickly corrected with the Automatic Regrade feature.

Enterprise Surveys & Course Evaluations

Institutions can now conduct surveys at the course, department, institution levels.  You also have robust analysis tools and reports at your disposal, with the ability to track response rates, aggregate or disaggregate results, and even track results year over year.
