Create a Site
WordPress is now integrated with Blackboard!
Mason faculty can automatically generate a WordPress site from within any Blackboard course or organization. Access to WordPress will always be from within Blackboard in order to authenticate users.
1) From the + button above the course menu, choose Tool Link. Give it a name, and choose WordPress CourseBlogs under "Type." Be sure to check "Available to Users" and Submit. WordPress will now appear at the bottom of your course menu.
2) As instructor, you must click the WordPress link one time in order to activate the site! The WordPress site will automatically be generated and instructors and students accounts created in the site.
Instructors will be granted full access to the WordPress site, and students will be given an Author role allowing them to post and comment on the site.
