Qwickly Attendance for Blackboard: How to tell the difference between the LTI tool vs the Building Block Tool

Blackboard Learn users may potentially be using the outdated Building Block (B2) version of the Qwickly Attendance tool. The recommended version of the Attendance tool is LTI.

There are a few visual indications that will allow you to make sure whether a course is using the B2 Attendance tool or the LTI Attendance tool.
