Data Integration Kick Off

  • Agenda

    Objective: Meet your Data Integration Specialist and discuss secure transfer of data from all applicable systems into the Blackboard Communications portal via Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

    NOTE: Blackboard is dedicated to helping keep your information secure so please, don’t ever email staff, parent, or student files. These should be shared through the established SFTP site.

      • Data Link: You can use Data Link for scheduling data extraction and transfer to SFTP: Access the DataLink Install and Setup Guide here.
      • SFTP: You can also push your data to an SFTP site from your locally installed or hosted database systems.

    • Install Data Transfer software (own or Blackboard’s in-house)
