Embed an activity in BlackBoard

While Poll Everywhere has BlackBoard integration to import your class roster and Gradebook reports, it does not have a built-in method to embed polls within BlackBoard. However, some instructors use the Item tool in BlackBoard to embed the poll. Here's how: Add “/embed” to a poll’s link or click the “Share” menu to find the embed codes.

  1. Click the title of the poll question you want to embed

  2. Click the Present tab at the top right

  3. Click Share, and select "Embed" at the bottom of the menu
