The Assignment Tool

Welcome to Blackboard Bitez! In this episode, let’s take a look at the build-in tool for assignments in Blackboard.

Show Notes

The video shows you how to use the assignment feature in your Blackboard course. The assignment tool is one way to provide an assignment to your students. It is a good alternative to having your students email you their assignments as attachments, filling up your inbox. Adding due dates, setting point, it’s all covered in the video above. Sudents can upload assignment files, as the feature supports file format uploads of .html, .doc/.docx, .xls/.xlsx, .ppt/pptx, and .pdf.

You can go into the Grade Center to see the column that is automatically created for each assignment. You can also access your students assignment files from there, and provide a grade for it.
