If you are interested in marking offline eg using Word, would you like to try out a new tool which allows the upload of feedback for a whole cohort or for groups of students? The Digital Education Office is running three short hands-on sessions where you can have a go. The sessions are suitable for markers or administrators who support marking.
More information on the tool
In order to better support markers who mark offline, the Digital Education Office has been working with Blackboard on development of a tool which allows Instructors to:
- batch download assignments, including by group (eg if you are marking a subset of students within a unit)
- mark offline eg annotating an assignment or completing a separate feedback sheet in Word
- batch upload marks and feedback files.
This video provides an overview of how the tool works. Please note that currently the tool can only be used where students have submitted an assignment in Blackboard.
If you have any queries please contact the Digital Education Office.
