Blackboard Building Blocks
Blackboard is a critical component of UTC learning environment. In addition to Blackboard’s existing tools for teaching and learning is the potential to integrate third-party products into the system to improve instruction and learning.
UTC’s Accessible Technology Initiative requires that all new technologies adopted at UTC be fully accessible to all UTC students, faculty, and staff. In partnership with the Center for Online and Distance Learning new Blackboard technologies are tested to ensure accessibility and compatibility with the existing Blackboard system.
Faculty interested in adopting a third-party component (sometimes called building blocks) that require integration with the Blackboard system will need to complete the form below before installation.
After your request is received by the Center for Online and Distance Learning, the CODL staff will begin the process of quality assurance (QA) testing. In addition to functionality testing, the requested components will also undergo testing for universal design and accessibility compliance by the Disability Resource Center.
