Integrate MATLAB Grader with Blackboard Learn (Blackboard)

Check for Existing MATLAB Grader Integration

The easiest way to find out if MATLAB® Grader™ has already been integrated with your LMS is to add a coding problem to your course. See the next section for instructions.

If you cannot find the MATLAB Grader integration, or it is clear that MATLAB Grader has not been integrated yet, contact one of the resources in Getting Help.

Instructors: Add MATLAB Grader Coding Problem to Course

If an LMS administrator has already performed MATLAB Grader integration with Blackboard® Learn, you can add MATLAB Grader coding problems to your course.

  1. In Blackboard Learn, find the course where you want to add coding problems.

  2. Within the course, go to Content > Build Content.

  3. Look for "MATLAB Grader" in the list of available content types.

  4. Select the MATLAB Grader integration.

  5. Where prompted, enter a name for the problem. Enter any other information you want in the appropriate fields.

  6. Click Submit.

  7. Click on the problem title to edit the problem. Blackboard Learn launches the MATLAB Grader interface for copying and creating content.

    You can create a new problem or select a problem from your available collections or courses. To access your MATLAB Grader content, see Link MathWorks Account to MATLAB Grader Assessment Content.

If you are unable to find the MATLAB Grader integration or need help for any part of this process, contact one of the resources in Getting Help.
