Common Issues in LTI Integration


  • New Line in Description Field Breaks LTI: There is a known issue in Blackboard where the use of a new line (pressing the Enter key) in the description field of a content item will break the LTI connection. When creating your LTI links, please use single paragraph text only in the description field, with no new lines, and minimal formatting.
  • Including Multiple Quizzes in a Single LTI Link: If you combine multiple quizzes within a single LTI link, Blackboard will aggregate the quizzes and return a total score in a single gradebook column.


  • Disassociating the Gradebook Before Deleting: Before deleting a module, it must first be disassociated with the gradebook. If the gradebook column was still associated with the module upon deletion, the gradebook column will no longer be capable of deletion itself.
