Blackboard released a new mobile app for iPad to allow grading on the go for myWPI!  Download the new BB Grader App on your iPad to provide annotated feedback to your students via inline grading.

Now use the commenting tool, highlighter, text selection tool, strikeout tool, and drawing tool provided all within the app on your tablet—no need to download student files, provide feedback, and then upload again!

BB Grader also has the option to use the tablet’s microphone and camera to record audio and video feedback. Note: BB Grader does not yet support SafeAssign documents.

  • iOS, iOS7, iOS8
  • iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad 2, 3, or 4

Features of BB Grader

  1. Inline viewing of student submissions
