Embed activities in Blackboard

While Poll Everywhere has BlackBoard integration to import your class roster and export gradebook reports, it does not have a built-in method to embed activities within BlackBoard. It is possible, however, to use the Item tool in BlackBoard to embed activities. The steps below will walk you through the process.

Step 1: On your Activities page, click the title of the activity you want to embed.
