Blackboard Releases Tablet App for Teachers

Blackboard Inc. today announced the availability of a tablet app designed to improve faculty workflow around assignments and track student submissions.

Through Bb Grader®, teachers and faculty can track, sort, and grade student assignments across multiple courses directly from their iOS® tablets and offer text, audio and video feedback on submissions. The tool also allows teachers to view metrics on potential student performance risks.

The app is available at no extra cost to teachers whose schools use Blackboard’s mobile teaching and learning solution and is currently available for iOS (opens in new tab) and is supported for the iPad® and iPad Mini®.
