If you are using Blackbaud as your organization's learning environment it may be of interest to configure an LTI between Digiexam and Blackbaud to allow for a more streamlined assignment, quiz and exam process.
The LTI between Digiexam and Blackbaud allows for the provisioning of Digiexam accounts directly from the learning management system, and allows you to link Digiexam assignments, quizzes and tests directly into your Blackbaud courses. Students will then be able to start up their Digiexam app logged in directly through the integration and begin working without additional exam IDs.
This guide will demonstrate, step-by-step, how to configure the LTI between Digiexam and Blackbaud. It is important to note that only system administrators of Blackbaud and Digiexam users with account manager permissions will be able to configure this LTI.
