Blackboard has a new feature where instructors can leave video and/or audio feedback on Assignments, Discussion Posts, Blogs, Journals, Wikis, and Tests. Students can then listen/view instructor feedback from their "My Grades" section.

1. Open the assignment you need to grade from "Needs Grading" or the "Full Grade Center".
2. Then, click on the capital “A” icon to “Open the full content editor”. Note: If you do not see the blue "Feedback to Learner" box, click on the blue bar beneath the grade.
3. Next, click on the microphone icon to leave audio or video feedback.
5. When you are ready to record, hit the red button (Note: you have a maximum of 5 minutes).
6. You may pause and resume the recording at any time. When you’re finished recording, click on the red “Stop” button.
