The Crocodoc Inline Grading tool that has been featured in Blackboard (via a third party) for the last few years was purchased by a company called Box.

 Box has decided to revamp and rebranded the product and as such, the current version you are using has an end of life date. 

As it currently stands, we expect to be able to continue to offer the Crocodoc tool through the Winter Intersession. Blackboard will be updating our software on our around January 4th at which time, the Crocodoc tool will cease to exist and its replacement, currently referred to as the “Box Inline Grading Tool” will be active and available for use.

 I.T. is expecting to get access to this tool in mid November on out test server in order to prepare any necessary documentation of changes and usage. We will keep you informed of the process and of training/workshop opportunities once we have a test version in place.


Blackboard has provided the following website with more details about the new inline Grading tool and the transition:
