Important update (12/26/23): Turnitin and Anthology Blackboard identified a bug in the new API integration that impacts customers using Blackboard Ultra Course View . Anthology Blackboard is currently working to resolve the issue and have agreed to extend Building Blocks until June 30, 2024.

Next Steps: At this time, we recommend clients using Ultra Course View to pause their migration efforts from the ExamSoft Building Block to LTI until further notice. When Anthology Blackboard has the required update, we will notify customers immediately with guidance and next steps.

Deprecation of the Blackboard Building Blocks

As you may know already, Blackboard is sunsetting the Building Blocks integration on June 30, 2024, which impacts the existing ExamSoft integration.

 

Reasons to migrate to the new ExamSoft Blackboard integration

We’re glad to announce the release of the API-based replacement integration for Blackboard's Building Blocks.

We'll provide you with support resources and detailed guidance to help you make a smooth transition.

The new integration will offer similar functionality, the only big difference will be the integration setup.

Note: Please also note that not migrating may result in the loss of certain ExamSoft functionality once the existing Building Block integration is sunset by Blackboard.
