There may be times when you are asked to add External Examiners to your module in Blackboard Ultra, or to set up a Module Box area for them to use.


What do External Examiners see in Blackboard Ultra?

External Examiner is a type of Blackboard module enrolment, in the same way that module leader or student is a type of module enrolment, although with different access rights. In simple terms, an external can see what a student sees, plus all assignment submissions, grades and feedback through the Gradebook, plus the Module Box area.

Your school admin team will be able to facilitate adding external examiners to your modules.

What is a Module Box?

Module Box is a content folder which is accessible only to module leaders and external examiners, and which contains material private to the external examining process.

There is a guide available on the Staff Knowledge Base that can assist you in creating your Module Box and populating it with content. To access this, click on the following link:
