WordPress is 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.
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. Please note, the WordPress site will open in a new window so you may need to agree to a pop-up browser window.
