Does your institution use OneDrive for Business, Office 365 or Google Workspace (formerly G Suite)? Allow your instructors and students to access their institution accounts from their Ultra courses.

Administrators configure the institution account to turn on instructor and student access. When instructors and students access their institution accounts, the storage provider validates the account. After the account is validated, it displays every time users access their profile, courses, or the Tools panel.

The service provider and domain name are needed to complete institution account configuration. After configuration, authenticated institution cloud accounts are associated with Blackboard Learn accounts. This means that users don't need to authenticate more than once. The institution accounts display in their course no matter what device or browser they use.

Users must use a login ID that matches the domain configured for institution accounts to display.

  1. On the Administrator Panel, select Institution Cloud Storage.
  2. Select your provider.
  3. Enter the institution's domain name associated with your provider account. For example,
  4. Select Save.

Instructors and students can now access cloud storage from their course.
