The Blackboard – Microsoft Teams Integration tool allows Course Administrators to create Microsoft Teams meetings through the Blackboard interface and embed the joining link directly into a Blackboard course’s content areas. 

Once created, and the link has been accessed, the Microsoft Teams meeting will appear in the Teams calendar and BB course calendar of all staff and students enrolled on the course. 

The Blackboard – Microsoft Teams Integration can only be created and deployed onto a course by users who are enrolled as either a Course Admin or a Course Teacher in a Blackboard course. 

Please note that the Blackboard – Microsoft Teams Integration is disabled on courses by default. It can be enabled for an entire department only, not for individual courses. Departments that wish to enable the tool should raise a request via their respective Faculty Ed-Tech teams
