Sync Data Between WebAssign and Blackboard

For WebAssign building block version 2.1.0 and later, data can be synced automatically between WebAssign and Blackboard® at a specified time of day.

Note: Requires WebAssign building block version 2.1.0 and later.
Blackboard and WebAssign can synchronize the following data:
  • Course rosters can be synced one way from Blackboard to WebAssign.
  • Assignment scores can be synced one way from WebAssign to Blackboard.

Blackboard administrators can enable or disable auto-sync. If auto-sync is enabled, instructors can disable it for their own courses.

Important: Blackboard user roles must be mapped to either instructor or student roles in WebAssign. User data is not synced correctly with WebAssign if the Blackboard roles are not correctly mapped.
