Reminder: Blackboard downtime tonight – 10.30 pm 4 January to 10.30 am 5 January 2018

This is a reminder that the Blackboard service will be unavailable from 10.30 pm tonight (Thursday 4 January 2018) up to 10.30 am tomorrow (Friday 5 January 2018) for essential maintenance work. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. This update will include a change to Blackboard’s feedback annotation tool (Crocodoc). Please see separate post for information.

How do I look at my grades or check my submissions?

Check submissions

  1. When you submit your assignment you will see an onscreen confirmation and receive an email receipt
  2. If you see a message saying “This file is being converted. The estimated waiting time is … seconds” your submission will have been registered but you may need to refresh the page to see it.

Look at grades and feedback

  1. From your Blackboard home page, in the Tools menu click My Grades.  A link to My Grades can also be found in most Blackboard courses
  2. Click on the relevant course and find the assignment
  3. Click on the assignment link to see your submission or access feedback (if this has been provided)
