Connector Blackboard

Blackboard is a leading EdTech company dedicated to advancing learning through technology. Blackboard’s learning management systems (LMS) have been developed to support teachers and students through all their course management needs. Prioritizing digital learning, Blackboard delivers an engaging, personalized platform for users that supports in-class and remote learning.

HelloID’s connector allows your school district to provision students and staff directly into Blackboard and achieve automated identity management. HelloID provides an attribute mapper to sync with your source system data (e.g., SIS). The attribute mapper’s configuration links the source system’s fields and variables to HelloID, which then uses those attributes to provision resources and keep them up-to-date.

Onboarding, Provisioning, & Ongoing Management

HelloID detects changes in your source system via connectors. Detected changes trigger processes that update users and their access to Blackboard according to your configurations. Processes are automatic, consistent, and logged—reclaiming significant IT staff bandwidth.

For new students and staff, HelloID automatically provisions Blackboard accounts, group memberships, class assignments, permissions, and more. HelloID processes changes made to existing users to ensure everything remains up-to-date. When changes in your SIS indicate that a student or staff member has departed the district, HelloID swiftly deactivates Blackboard accounts and revokes access.

With connecting Blackboard to HelloID, automated attribute-based access control has never been as quick or easy.
