Request a 3rd Party Integration

If an instructor would like to utilize a 3rd party integration within their Blackboard Learn course, the following must be completed.

  1. Faculty must fill out the ‘Contact eLearning Suite Support’ form with contact information of the vendor and how the integration will be used within the course.
  2. IT-ETMS Instructional Application Admins will contact the vendor to complete a HECVAT statement.  
  3. Once the completed HECVAT statement has been approved by the IT- Security Office, ETMS staff will work with the vendor to install a test instance of the integration on our Blackboard Learn test system.
  4. The vendor and the faculty member(s) requesting the integration will then need to test the system to be sure it works as needed.
  5. Once the testing is completed, the integration will be installed on our Blackboard Learn production environment. 
  6. The vendor and the faculty member(s) requesting the integration will then need to test the system to be sure it works as needed.

This process may take up to several months before the integration is available for use within the Blackboard Learn environment, so PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY!

If you have any questions or concerns, please fill out the ‘Contact eLearning Suite Support’ form.
