Importing CK-12 Content from Blackboard xpLor

On March 25, Blackboard announced a partnership with digital content provider CK-12 Foundation, “a non-profit organization that provides full curriculum coverage for K-12 Math & Science.” CK-12 content is FREE and is now available via Blackboard xpLor. xpLor is available to institutions running Blackboard Learn, Moodlerooms, or Blackboard Engage (Edline).

To import CK-12 content into your course you will first need to access Blackboard xpLor from the course you wish to add content to.

  1. From the xpLor homepage click Discover.
    CK_xpLor_home
  2. In the top right corner click Filter, then Contributor.
    CK_xpLor_Filter
  3. In the field enter CK-12 Education. A popup should appear with the CK-12 logo, click the logo, then Apply.
    CK_xpLor_Contributor

This will display a list of all CK-12 Education content available in xpLor. To search for specific content use the search bar at the top of the page. xpLor should automatically display content created by CK-12. If that does not occur repeat steps 2 and 3.
