Q. How do I view annotated feedback in New Box View?


The New Box View replaces the previous Crocodoc tool on NILE, which allows instructors to add annotations on student work submitted to a Blackboard assignment. This does not affect Turnitin and not all assignments will have annotations.

Below is a brief tour of the New Box View from a student perspective:

Viewing annotated assignments on New Box View



  1. To view a 'Point' comment, select the blue speech bubble icon as shown in the image above (image reference number 1)
  2. Where you see text highlighted, there is likely to be an associated comment. To view a 'Highlight' comment, select the piece of text (image ref 2)
  3. As before, if a rubric is available it will be shown in the grade panel on the right hand side (image ref 3)
  4. As before, a marker may have made further comments in the grade panel on the right hand side (image ref 4)
  5. There is an option to post a reply, but this functionality is not available and cannot be used (image ref 5)

Important notes:

  • If your work does not immediately appear and a download button is shown instead, refresh the browser page. 
  • If you continue to experience issues with the view, please use a Chrome or Firefox browser.
  • Only one comment can be viewed at a time.
