Providing Student Feedback the Classic Way – How to Download a Blackboard Essay into Microsoft Word and use the Review Tab
From Educational Technology on January 30th, 2018
You can easily download a copy of their essay into a Microsoft Word document. It provides two super simple ways to provide student with feedback: Using the comment tool, add comments to specific sections of the paper. By enabling “track changes”, you can revise the paper and each and every thing you change will be displayed to the student. Word marks up and shows any changes that you make to the document. This video will show you how download writing assignments to your computer, add comments, enable ‘track changes’, and the upload the revised document back into the grade center for the student. It’s about 10 clicks to download the file, add comments in Word, and the upload the revised document back into the Grade Center. Admittedly, downloading each student’s essay is a bit time consuming, because you have to save each file locally to your computer one-by-one (there’s no option to download them all at once). However, once you download the file, it’s super simple to make revisions or add comments.
