Configuration of the Blackboard API integration involves two distinct stages:
1. Configuring the Integration between Blackboard and Chalk & Wire: This part should be completed by a Blackboard Administrator.
Registering a Chalk & Wire's API Integration indicates to Blackboard that it is allowed to communicate with Chalk & Wire.
The Blackboard base url points in Chalk & Wire directs the system to your Blackboard instance. A specific API Key is not required.
2. Configure Assignment links in Chalk & Wire: This part can be completed by a Chalk & Wire Administrator or a user with Administrator overrides.
After completing step 1, you will be ready to link Table of Contents sections to Blackboard grade columns. Blackboard assignments/grade columns must be created in Blackboard prior to setting up the Chalk & Wire links and you must have an instructor role in the Blackboard courses to which you wish to link the Chalk & Wire assignments.
