Blackboard Integration Guides

LabSim is able to integrate with Blackboard Learn using the TestOut LabSim Building Block (for installed releases April 2014 and newer) or via deep-linking with LTI 1.1 Integration.

 

Building Block Integration

If you are running an installed version of Blackboard that is newer than the April 2014 release, please reach out to your TestOut representative to set up a Consumer Key/Secret and LMS Integration training.

After receiving your Key/Secret, use the Blackboard Building Block Integration Guide to aid your setup of the LabSim Building Block.

LTI Integration

For other versions of Blackboard Learn, we have the ability to create links using LTI 1.1.  Please reach out to your TestOut representative to set up a Consumer Key/Secret and LMS Integration training.

After receiving your Key/Secret, we have created a Blackboard Integration Guide to aid your LTI Integration.

Here are some technical documents on integrating your LMS with LabSim:
