Register and Connect to Argos

  1. The first time you launch Argos from a newly integrated LMS, you must register your institution. 
    Note: If you do not complete this step, the first person who launches Argos (such as instructor), will be shown the Registration screen. We recommend you do this in advance of your instructors needing to connect to Argos, because an Argos Admin must take the step of accepting your registration, which may take up to 24 hours. If you have not received approval in 24 hours, or need it more quickly, content Argos Support.
  2. Fill in the Institution Name, Institution URL, Email, and Location fields, then select Blackboard and Register
    Note: The Blackboard developer URLs will be pre-populated and do not need to be changed.

  3. After submitting your registration, an email is sent to the Argos team for approval. Once they approve, you will receive an email saying your registration is approved.
  4. After approval, the next time you or your instructors launch a course link to Argos, the Getting Started screen will appear.
