Home / Blackboard News & Updates / Blackboard Annotate Migration Information


Blackboard Learn will be replacing the New Box View integration with a new tool called Bb Annotate for Inline Assignment Grading. The migrations to Bb Annotate will take place between Thursday, July 2nd  – Thursday, July 9th  , 2020.

Migration to Bb Annotate will be automatic and could take several hours to days depending on the number of files that need to be migrated from New Box View to Bb Annotate. If a user is actively annotating using New Box View, the migration for the file will be delayed until after the user completes that marking session.

Bb Annotate will offer a more robust feature set for you to provide customizable feedback to your students, including a sidebar summary view, freehand drawing tools, various color selections, and more.
