Setting up the Blackboard Connector

Remark Test Grading Cloud can connect directly to your Blackboard account so teachers can seamlessly send grades to Blackboard. Your Remark administrator must first set up a link to your Blackboard server. Then teachers can link classes and tests to Blackboard to send information between the two applications.

Note: The Blackboard Connector can be purchased through our sales department.

Setting up the Blackboard Link in Remark Test Grading Cloud

Please use the following instructions to link Remark to your Blackboard account. You must be an administrator in Remark Test Grading Cloud to complete these steps.
