Hi Kathy.

Cant say about the grade center. Is it possible for the list members to test 
blackboard and explore the possible issues and their possible resolution 

It looks like grade center is used for uploading grades. Iknow  a lot of 
teachers who avoid using the grading areas for uploading the grades. They 
upload the grades along with the comments on the assignments and keep a note 
off line.
