Integration: Blackboard Collaborate Communication Tool

Before getting started:

  • You MUST have an IntelliBoard Next account.
  • IntelliBoard will not display historical data for Blackboard Collaborate meetings (meetings that happened before making connection).
  • Meetings only appear in reporting few minutes after ending.
  • CRON must be run at least every 12 hours in order to track all sessions. If session data has not been sent over within 24 hours, sessions won't appear in reporting.

Step 1:

  • From Moodle LMS system, go to Site Administration > Plugins > Plugin Overview.
  • Find the Collaborate plugin and click on Settings.mceclip0.png
