Blackboard Tip: See Comments on Assignment Submissions

While reviewing assignment submissions, you may want some more “screen space” to see the document or instructor comments. Here’s how to show a list of comments on a document and how to collapse the course menu to give you more space to see an assignment.

If you want to get a better look at comments on an assignment submission, click to expand the comments into a “clickable” list. Once the list is up, you can click on each comment there and the tool will display where in the document that comment “lives.” To access the list, just the click the two chevrons next to the “Powered by crocodoc” on the right side of the frame.

Expand instructor comments to see a clickable list that takes you to where the comment is located in the document.

If you’re grading and adding comments, or any time that some more screen real estate could help, you can also collapse the course menu by hovering over its right side and then clicking on the left-pointing (←) arrow. When you’re done, hover over the course menu area and you’ll see a right-pointing arrow (→) to expand the menu.

Retract the course menu to see more of a student submission and instructor comments.

If you still can’t see the full comments, make sure you’re using a supported browser.
