@Ruth Phillips - Students can submit this on Blackboard, depending on the format that you choose.
Ruth S Phillips
29:19
i was thinking it would also be useful to collect the info in the form of a survey
Martha A Diede
30:07
Absolutely.
Martha A Diede
30:21
A survey is a good idea.
Ruth S Phillips
32:07
Blackboard assignment is fantastic, I use it for all my classes - one thing to consider though, some students don’t have the ability to upload files (don’t have Microsoft office)
Ruth S Phillips
32:26
so they end up emailing it : (

They all have access to Office 365
Kamala

I have had the same issue as Ruth
Leonid Kovalev

Google Docs also can save a document in MS Word format.
Ruth S Phillips
36:10
Is there a link or video we can send them that teaches them how to do it : )?
Nikki
36:14
Is it true that Mac files are an issue in BB?
Moira McDermott (she/her)
37:05
I think it is more that the faculty member might not be able to open the Mac files

I have used BlackBoard assignments a few times, but I always wonder how students actually see and access the feedback. I am wondering if there is a visual about how it actually looks for the student end?
Loredana Lanzani
39:55
@Elizabeth: would clicking on ``Student View’’ help?
Rachel razza
40:19
I have had issues trying to change the numbers of the rubrics in BB because it wants to wants to provide a weight to them. To work around this, I had them submit via turnitin and I created a rubric in that space. I was faced with 2 issues: 1) turnitin does not allow for decimal places so I have to go back and manually edit the grade the synchs with BB, and 2) when I have merged classes, only some of the students papers show up automatically as ready to grade. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Elizabeth Gleesing (she/her)
40:41
@Loredana, I don't know that I would see another student's feedback via student view. I could try grading myself as a student, perhaps
Ruth S Phillips
43:05
I had to get ITS to send me instructions for students to see the feedback, and then walk students through it, which did work well
Loredana Lanzani
43:08
Can this tool be used to grade mathematics assignments?
Elizabeth Gleesing (she/her)
43:39
@Ruth, that sounds like a great option, I will look into that, thanks!
Nikki
45:40
Ruth, can you share this?
Ruth S Phillips
48:44
@Nikki Sure! I’m in a phone so I can’t get at it right now but I can find it later, maybe send it to Martha or Michael to distribute to the group?
Martha A Diede
49:52
We're happy to share, Ruth!
Ruth S Phillips
50:15
👍🏼👍🏽
Rachel razza
50:48
Can you integrate a rubric with this annotate function?
Ruth S Phillips
51:02
Yes the rubrics are very helpful
Ruth S Phillips
51:34
when you make the assignment, add a rubric and it will show up when you do the grading
Ruth S Phillips
52:33
You can check which boxes in the rubric and it puts the numeric grade in automatically when you submit
Rachel razza
53:04
I think it would be helpful to have a session on how to build rubrics in BB because every time I try, I spend hours trying to get the points right into the rubric and I give up.
Martha A Diede
53:21
@Rachel - we can definitely do that!
Catherine Nock
53:27
I agree, Rachel!
Ruth S Phillips
54:19
Extra cool - you can transfer rubrics from one course to another, modify them, make copies, all sorts of stuff
Ruth S Phillips
55:03
That blue box - if you’ve linked a rubric to the assignment, that is where it pops up
Ruth S Phillips
56:33
students LOVE the video feedback
Rachel razza
01:00:09
We don't have access to those tools in our department.
Ruth S Phillips
01:00:38
I used groupMe for feedback after spring break. It is like texting. students were pretty happy with it
Loredana Lanzani
01:00:47
Notability is great
Martha A Diede
01:01:28
@Rachel - which tools?
Rachel razza
01:03:07
Sorry - to clarify - as faculty, we either get a desktop or standard laptop (not surface or other equipment), so while surface would be great, we do not have access.
Francine J D'Amico
01:03:57
Can't all faculty use SURA - Syracuse University Remote Access?
Catherine Nock
01:04:26
This is like QVC, thanks Moira :-)
Moira McDermott (she/her)
01:06:57
THis is a big problem in STEM departments for TAs
Debbie
01:06:57
I was trying to attempt to embed the rubric in the assignment grading section in Blackboard - can you review that again- I make rubrics in word and attach them and it can be cumbersome student by student

final project strategy - over the summer I taught an online class and had students work on it in pieces throughout the semester, and the final draft had to incorporate feedback
