I’m pleased to say that the Blackboard Connector has been updated on the Questionmark website!
The connector now comes in three flavours. We’ve matched the version numbers to make it as simple as possible to identify the right connector for your environment. Connector 9.1 is for users of Blackboard 9.1 (the latest version of Blackboard’s Learning Management System). Connector 9.0 is for users of Blackboard 9.0. Finally, Connector 8.0 is for Blackboard Learn 8.
All versions have updated user interfaces to improve the look and feel within the Blackboard environment; we’ve also improved the synchronization of users and groups, added synchronization of assessment folders and improved the integration with the Blackboard content system.
Oh, and by popular demand we’ve changed the assessment selection drop-down so that it now shows the available assessments organized by their assessment folders. This change will make it much easier to control access to the assessment lists too.
The 9.1 connector has all the above improvements and more! With Blackboard 9.1 you can now copy Questionmark content items between courses, including using the course copy tool and the content import/export facilities.
As you can see, we’ve made some significant changes to these connectors. Thanks to everyone who tested out the community edition prior to this release – your comments and feedback were invaluable.
