Blackboard have introduced a new assignment submission page. It is designed to be easier for students to use.
The new student assignment submission page has three sections: instructions (1), assignment information (2), and submission (3):
The Instructions section displays any instructions or guidance you provide about the assignment, including any attached files.
The Assignment Information section groups together details about the assignment including Due Date, Points Possible, Feedback Rubric (if used), and any information about group membership and update statuses (if set as a group assignment).
The Submission section now requires students to select the action they require when submitting work:
- Create Submission (formerly Write Submission) – students use this option when adding content such as Panopto videos to their submission.
- Upload Files – widely used option for assignment submissions, students add and submit file attachments. If the file type submitted is supported by Annotate it will convert to display inline.
- Add Comments – optionally students can add comments about their submission.
