The upgrade of Blackboard in the summer to the latest version (9.1 2014) will provide you with access to some new and enhanced features. Here is a round-up of some of the new features:
A real student preview. Instructors can see exactly what a student sees in a course area, including the ability to submit assignments, take an online test or join a group, and even view results in My Grades.
True Anonymous grading using the Blackboard assignment tool.
Delegated marking of Blackboard assignments. This feature provides a streamlined online workflow for the allocation of assignments to markers, double marking and the reconciliation of grades.
