Blackboard Integration Features

  • Updated

Roster Sync

Each time you launch Perusall from Blackboard, a roster sync is run in the background.  Any students that have added to your LMS course will be added to your Perusall course roster (under the Students tab), and any that have unenrolled will be removed from the course.

Group Sync

If enabled by your Blackboard Admin, to access Blackboard group sync, navigate to your Perusall course Settings > Grouping, select Specify groups, and then click Import Groups from Blackboard to trigger a pop-up window allowing you access to your Blackboard group sets.  Select one group set to apply to your Perusall course.

Grade Sync

Perusall will automatically create gradebook columns for syncing grades. There is no need to create individual assignment links in Blackboard in order for grades to sync automatically.  (For more info, see Grade sync in LTI 1.3.)
