Saving Your Work from Blackboard – Students

No student data will be included in the migration from Blackboard to Canvas (e.g., grades, assignments, submissions, or quiz results). This guide specifically addresses how students can save their classwork on a local or cloud drive. Students are not required to download their work, but they have the option if they would like to have it for the future.  

Important 

  • Blackboard will be unavailable to all users after December 1st, 2022. 
  • There is no way to bulk download all your assignments for one course. 
  • If you no longer see a course on your Blackboard dashboard, the instructor has made it unavailable.  Contact the instructor to request permission to access the course. 
  • Courses taken three or more years prior may no longer be available. 

How To Save Your Student Submissions From Blackboard – Assignments 

  1. Navigate to MyGrades.
  2. Under the ‘Item’ column, click the title of the assignment. 
  3. In this dashboard, you will see your original submission, which you can download.   
    • If the instructor has provided feedback in the ‘feedback box’, you can save it as an artifact.   
    • If the instructor provided feedback directly on your paper, you can download the annotated version of the paper to your local drive. 

How To Save Your Student Submissions From Blackboard – Tests and Quizzes 

  1. Navigate to MyGrades. 
  2. Under the ‘Item’ column, click the title of the quiz or test. 
  3. In this dashboard, you will see the ‘calculated grade’ column.  Click on the score in this column. 
  4. Depending on your instructor’s settings, you may be able to see the entire test which shows your incorrect or correct answers, or you may only be able to see a score. If you are able to see the entire test, you can print the test to a pdf document and save on your local drive.
