LTI 1.3 for Blackboard

If your institution requires the use of LTI 1.3 tools we now offer a LTI 1.3 SSO solution that provides a static link from your LMS to Course Evaluations & Surveys.

If your institution is successfully leveraging the current User Integration functionality, ie. dynamic links in your LMS and Survey Notifications, we recommend waiting, if possible, until we have LTI 1.3 functionality in our LMS User Integrations, which we expect to release over the coming months.
