Preview of New Features in Blackboard 9.1 April 2014 Release

This year's Blackboard update to Blackboard Learn 9.1 April 2014 Release has a number of exciting updates and enhancements. For example, the Portfolio tool is completely rebuilt, making it easier than ever for students to create portfolios that synthesize their experience at NIU. A new Student Preview mode simplifies the process of testing the student experience of your courses. The new Anonymous & Delegated Grading workflow is a powerful tool for hiding student identify when grading or collaborating with other faculty or TAs for evaluating student work. The integration of the Assignment and SafeAssignment assessments combines the power of advanced grading tools with the option to include plagiarism prevention. In the April 2014 Release, all of this is wrapped in an updated modern look.
