Blackboard, in collaboration with Box, have announced that annotations and several bug fixes will be released in early March. Annotation capabilities are essential for faculty members who want to grade inside Blackboard.
Many faculty who use Blackboard relied on Crocodoc, which allowed annotations and several other features useful for grading assignments inside Blackboard. Box bought Crocodoc and recently retired it. After being retired, Box replaced it with Box View, which lacks many of the features instructors had come to rely on in grading assignments (namely annotations).
Box is rolling out a half dozen bug fixes in March but most importantly they are adding annotation capabilities (though limited at first), which will allow instructors to regain much of the functionality they lost when Crocodoc was replaced.
