Blackboard

If enabled by your school's Blackboard® administrator, you can access and manage your WebAssign® courses directly from Blackboard. The features that are available to you depend on the Blackboard version and on the version of the WebAssign building block enabled by the Blackboard administrator at your school.

Before you begin to create WebAssign courses in Blackboard, find out what version of Blackboard is running and what version of the WebAssign building block is installed. Depending on these versions, some features might not be available, or some tasks might be performed differently.

Ask your Blackboard administrator for the following information:
  • The version of Blackboard that is installed
  • The version of the WebAssign building block that is installed
