Blackboard Learn Groups & Pronto

NOTE: If you created groups in your Blackboard course prior to launching Pronto for the first time, those groups will be created in pronto automatically.

  • There is typically a 24 hour delay before Blackboard Learn groups show up in Pronto.
  • The instructor will not see the groups on Pronto unless the instructor is also a member of the group.
    • From the Add Users window, select "Show all users regardless of role" checkbox when adding yourself as a group member if you are the instructor. 

NOTE: If you created groups in Pronto using the "+" buttonyou will automatically be a member of those groups, and able to see all student messages.  These groups will not appear in your Blackboard course.
