The new partnership plans to provide direct access to Cengage Learning’s digital content, core curriculum solutions and increased functionality for institutions utilizing Blackboard’s Web-based teaching and learning platform. Users of Cengage Learning’s rich digital learning solutions and content will gain seamless access through automatic sign-on and gradebook integration, creating a simpler and more intuitive user experience for both instructors and students using Blackboard Learn.
The effort plans to offer a better experience for users of online homework provided via CourseMaster products such as Aplia and SAM as well as CourseMate and course cartridges. The added level of integration is made possible through Cengage Learning’s standards-based, interoperable, Web-services architecture (MindLinks) and the Blackboard Building Blocks™ program and open APIs of the Blackboard Learn platform. The agreement will also include ongoing interoperability options for Cengage Learning’s MindTap program and future product development.
