Blackboard is a web-based course management system with a customizable open architecture and scalable design; it acts as a central platform for sharing content with students.
ADSelfService Plus facilitates single sign-on (SSO) for Blackboard. This enables users to access Blackboard without needing a separate set of credentials. ADSelfService Plus provides SSO using the secure industry standard Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0).
ADSelfService Plus also facilitates the implementation of multi-factor authentication (MFA) for accessing Blackboard via SSO. You can use one or more authenticators that ADSelfService Plus supports for MFA—like SMS or email-based verification codes, or third-party authentication providers like RADIUS server, RSA SecurID, Google Authenticator, and Duo Security. By enforcing MFA through ADSelfService Plus, you can provide better security and ensure that only authorized users have access to applications like Blackboard.
Any application that supports SAML 2.0 protocol for authentication can be configured for SSO with ADSelfService Plus.
All SAML-based applications connected to ADSelfService Plus are points of logout. When users initiate a logout from the service provider, they are also logged out from ADSelfService Plus, and vice versa.
SSO can be rolled out for some or all users based on their domain, OU, or group membership.

Service-provider-initiated SSO for Blackboard: When this option is used, users can access their Blackboard domain through a URL or bookmark.

Users will now be able to use their Windows username and password to access Blackboard.
