Step-by-Step Instructions for Adding Packback to Blackboard Learn

  1. To enable Packback in your course on Blackboard Learn, select the course/module where you'd like to use Packback. Click Build Content.
  2. If your institution has enabled Packback as an available tool for your course, you should see Packback Questions in the dropdown menu.
    • If you do not see Packback as an available tool, you may need to contact your school's IT department and ask them to enable the "Build Content" placement for Packback in your course. If you need any assistance, please contact our team at
  3. Label your module, for example: "Week 1 - Packback Discussion" and add the description from the syllabus or lesson plan. This will create the LTI link!
  4. Add points possible for the lesson. Example: 20.
  5. From here, you have a few choices that are completely optional. You can make the module visible (or not visible) to students, set an absolute due date, or select date restrictions.
  6. Click Submit.

All it takes to finish setting up Packback from here is to click the newly created Packback link, and follow the instructions shown within Packback!

Welcome to Packback page with the instructions and 2 buttons: Continue to set up community in red and Learn more on Packback's website in blue.
