Deploy Qwickly as a Module on your Blackboard homescreen or a Tool in the Blackboard Tool Panel.

Please contact us through a support ticket in order to download the newest version of the Qwickly Blackboard Building Block.

Note that this Building Block is now only available for schools with a current, full license of Qwickly Course Tools. Service shutdown for other users was September 1, 2022 and complete platform shutdown for licensed users is scheduled for June 1, 2023. These licensed users should switch to the LTI version well before this date.

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.
