New Box View:
Blackboard's New Inline Grading Tool
Blackboard’s current service for inline grading, Crocodoc within the Assignments feature was discontinued on January 15, 2018. As a result, Blackboard is updated the inline grading feature to New Box View.
New Box View offers several improvements over Crocodoc, including improved rendering and expanded support of new file types. While there are a few differences between the two services, the new Box View will still provide a simple and convenient way to view and annotate student Assignment submissions. Existing student work that has been graded and annotated in Crocodoc has been migrated to the new Box View and will continue to be available to view.
