Next, scroll down to Institutional Tools and click the Soomo Webtext Linking Tool. Please note that you will also see a Soomo Webtext Course Tool—we will not be using that tool in this step.

In the new tab that opens you’ll see a list of webtexts to choose from that Soomo has prepared for you.

Select the webtext you’d like to link, then select to confirm this webtext for your course.

There will now be links to the webtext that match the Soomo grade items generated for your course in the Content section of your Blackboard Ultra course. You can feel free to move these links around within your Course Content. Both you and your students will be able to access the webtext via these links.

Pro tip: After selecting the course to link, you may see a Blackboard page stating, “The specified resource was not found, or you do not have permission to access it.” You can ignore this warning and return to your Blackboard course shell.
