Blackboard Upgrade Includes New Features

Good news for Blackboard users - with last weekend's upgrade, you can now take advantage of the following new features:

  • Modernized interface and over 100 professionally designed color schemes and designs for courses and organizations

  • Course-to-course navigation without returning to the My Blackboard tab

  • Course structure wizard for setting up course menus, tools, and content areas

  • Automated test re-grading for dropping, giving full credit, changing point value, or changing which answer is marked correct with automatic grade change notification

  • Negative scoring for applying negative point values for incorrect answers on assessment questions

You can learn more about the new features in a series of videos.


If you have any questions, contact the Help Desk through the TUhelp web site at or call 215-204-8000.
