In order for Blackboard and Extempore to be able to communicate, the first step is for your institution's Blackboard administrator to request a Consumer Key and Secret. Extempore will generate these two codes and your institution’s Blackboard Admin will input them into the system along with the following information, below.
How does my Blackboard Admin request a Consumer Key and Secret to integrate Blackboard and Extempore?
Please visit this web page in order to initiate the process. The Extempore team will contact the requester within 24 hours with the required information.
