Blackboard recently introduced a new feature where instructors and students can download annotated pdfs of graded assignments. This way you can keep a personal record of all the comments an instructor has left on your assignments. Note: These are instructions from the student point-of-view. For Instructor directions, visit the Faculty FAQ.
1. Navigate to the "Grades" tab from the left-sidebar menu.
2. Locate the course you would like to download an assignment from. Note: Click on the arrows at the top of the screen to cycle through current and past terms. Once you have found the correct course, click on "View all coursework".
2. From the "My Grades" window, find a graded assignment. Click on the title of the assignment to open up your submission.
3. Underneath the grade, you will see the name of the file you uploaded. Click on the small gray arrow next to it to open up more menu options. Then, click on “Download Annotated PDF”.
Note: After the file has downloaded, open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader/Pro to see all instructor comments and drawings.
