I used to be able to grade in the BB Grader app. For some reason it is no longer supported. They want you to use this one, but the grading component does not exist. If they can’t be bothered to write an app that supports all versions of their software, then really, what is the point? The only bright side is I have notifications turned on, so it at least notifies me when I have to go to my desktop.

Can be better

I can see my upcoming class but cannot do anything with it until it moves to current.

Would be nice if we can add contents. I can only add announcements.

Hate it

Except for making my teaching material easily accessible the app is useless to me. I need to access a Microsoft based device to upload my material into the system, I can’t access my grading, and even just navigating what is there is a painful and challenging experience. If it doesn’t improve I can’t possibly see myself repeating an attempt to teach using this app
