Teaching with Blackboard

About Blackboard

Blackboard™ is a course management system used campus-wide at NIU. The system allows faculty to post materials, deliver tests and surveys, hold online discussion and many other course-related functions. All currently-enrolled students and teaching faculty have access to the Blackboard system. We are running Blackboard version 9.1, April 2014 Release, having upgraded the system May 25, 2015.

NIU Faculty Can Submit Grades from Blackboard to MyNIU

Date posted: 5/9/2016

A graded assignment

Did you know that you can submit your grades from Blackboard to MyNIU? This can save you a great deal of time, particularly if you have been entering grades in the Blackboard Grade Center all semester. You can use the Grade Center to calculate final grades and then export them to MyNIU using the Grade Submission tool instead of manually entering them, saving time and reducing the opportunity for data entry errors.

Once you have submitted grades using this tool, you simply log in to MyNIU to review and post the final grades.

If you would like some assistance using the tool, please attend our Open Lab this week where Faculty Development staff will be on hand to answer your Blackboard questions about calculating and submitting final grades with Blackboard. No registration is required. Just stop by on Thursday, May 12 from 11:00 - 1:00 in Adams Hall, Room 323.

For more details on using the Grade Submission Tool, you can visit our main help page and our FAQs. As always, you can contact the Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center using our Ask a Question form for individualized assistance.
