Blackboard winter upgrade includes new features

by Chris Huston  |   

On Friday, Dec. 20, UA Blackboard underwent a system upgrade. The upgrade includes the following new features:

  1. Collaborate Ultra Attendance Integration with the Blackboard Grade Center. Instructors can host a Collaborate session without tracking attendance manually.
  2. New Originality Report available for the SafeAssign plagiarism tool. This includes a more responsive interface that includes new information about a submission's overall risk for being copied from another source.
  3. Calendar Items and Due Date Notifications for additional content types. The capability is expanded so that other content types, including those from 3rd party solutions, are now incorporated into these areas when using a web browser.

More information can be found in the version release notes.
