Once you have installed the Building Block, you will be asked to enter your Qwickly ID. If your institution does not have a Qwickly ID already, you can generate one right on the activation screen. You only need ONE Qwickly ID for all instances of Blackboard your institution has. You can always find your Qwickly ID on the Support/Registration tab of Qwickly Settings within Blackboard.

We recommend installing Qwickly on a Staged/Testing version of Blackboard Learn™ before installing in a production environment.
