End-of-life for Building Block in Blackboard Learn
As you may be aware, Blackboard will be reducing support for the Building Block framework by the end of 2023.
As an alternative to Building Blocks, Blackboard and Watermark strongly recommend that clients consider leveraging the LTI integration. The LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) offers an easier way to securely connect Watermark products with platforms such as your learning management systems (LMS), i.e. Blackboard, and school portals without the need for custom programming. It establishes a secure connection and confirms our tool’s authenticity while continuing to give you features like the exchange of assignment and grade data between Watermark and your LMS gradebook.
For instructions on how to configure the LTI integration with LiveText C1, please see LMS Integration Configuration Instructions: SSO / Deep Link / Grade Return.
If you need additional assistance setting up the LTI integration, please contact our Support Team.
