Downloading a Participant List from Blackboard

Instructors can import participant information from Blackboard into TurningPoint Cloud.

These instructions are intended for TurningPoint 8, the most recent and recommended version, and updated versions of TurningPoint 7.

If you edit a downloaded roster, updating it will remove any changes you've made and overwrite them with the information from Blackboard.

The following outlines the process for downloading a new participant list from Blackboard. This option is available once you have successfully created and account and opened the software. 

  1. Click the Manage tab. 
  2. Click on Course and select New from the menu:
