Blackboard, the university's virtual learning environment, has many built-in tools to support assessment and feedback practice. To help you make the most of these tools Blackboard provides a comprehensive range of short video tutorials which provide visual step-by-step guides.
A complete list of video tutorials is available from Blackboard Learn: For Instructors. They are organised by topic and cover course design, communication, collaboration and assessment. You may be particularly interested in Assessing Learners in Blackboard Learn.
It is worth noting that there are also playlists for students which include how to take a test online and how to submit an assignment to Blackboard.
Murdo Macmillan from the LIS team has collated training resources for the most commonly requested support. You can find these on his UHI Blackboard Mahara page (You will be prompted for your usual log in details).
Here is one of those resources, created by Murdo, which is a step by step guide to marking and attaching feedback using the Blackboard Grade Centre.
