One of my schools has just adopted Blackboard 9 this term, and I am loving it. I’ve been using another version of Bb9 prior to this term, but for some reason it seems as though it is a reduced version without all the nifty features, which I’m only getting to play with for the first time this term. Right now I am loving the grading feature in the gradebook that allows me to view assignments, grade and then move onto the next one without having to return to the gradebook. This really makes a huge difference, and is great design. It makes grading streamlined and efficient. I use the voice recognition software on my computer to give feedback, and away I go!
