Questions and Answers

Question: "I've been trying as much as possible to push content from the LTK widgets to the vista sites I'm responsible for, rather than creating content within vista. So, I want to make sure that I do not need to list these as components needing to be migrated to Blackboard."

Answer: Yvonne has verified that all types of LTK widgets except RSS widgets can be embedded in BB Learn. None of the LTK Guides, or Course Pages (or LibGuides) can be embedded into BB. A reasonable approach to bring in a Library LTK Guide/Course Page/LibGuide is to use the 'Web Link' BB Course tool, as illustrated in this video
