...that I can use to test out my application/integration?
Blackboard is investigating cost-effective, secure and easy to mange ways to provide this, but unfortunately, no. At this time there isn't an open, hosted deployment of Learn with the required administrative access for application development and testing. If you want to contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) I'll try to help you find an alternative.
If you have something to offer in exchange, maybe one of the other developers in the community would be willing to share their development environment with you.
Wouldn't sharing a development environment with a third party be a breach of the developer agreement?
Good point - be sure to have an attorney review your agreement. Sorry if that caused confusion
It would be useful if you could elaborate to why the Developer Virtual Machine is not acceptable for testing?
Jeff is correct - there is currently no alternative other than licensed installations. We are investigating alternatives to the DVM, but as Jeff notes unfortunately we do not have an option available at this time.
Peter - I believe you are correct that sharing a development environment would be a breach of the current developer agreement - definitely if you are a BBDN partner.
FWIW: I completely recognize the importance of this issue and hope to begin to get it sorted out over the coming months - I thank you for your patience while the wheels turn. :-)
Thank you. Two reasons:
1. I cannot get to the vagrant and virtual box files. I just get a blank screen:
2. It would be a lot easier if it was all just online.
Can you help me with #1? I cannot get setup all right now.
I asked the BtBb account folks to fix your account. I'll let you know when I hear back.
Thank you Scott!
