This year at BbWorld we will announce the New Digital Content & Upgrade Center. Learn how to guide your school or institution’s digital content strategy and work with consultants to build an upgrade, testing and implementation plan for Blackboard Learn 9.1. Professionals from the publishing industries (McGraw-Hill, Pearson, Wiley, Cengage Learning & Macmillan), faculty experts in course design and Blackboard technology specialists who can help you use Blackboard Learn tools to create your own instructional materials will be on hand to answer questions.
Sessions at the Digital Content & Upgrade Center will address topics such as digital content trends in education, best practices in integrating different technologies into Blackboard platforms and client stories using the current McGraw-Hill integration. With several new publisher-Blackboard integrations expected to launch this summer, including Pearson, Wiley and Cengage Learning solutions, we want to make sure you have the chance to see these new solutions “hot off the presses.”
The Blackboard learning management system is becoming a channel for all types of digital content to support the needs of the different types of instructors using our teaching and learning platform. Streamlined access to rich and trusted commercial content through a simplified discovery process will make building online courses easier and more efficient for teachers and faculty. Last year Blackboard launched its first publisher integration with McGraw-Hill to great fanfare and excitement. We are looking forward to launching our new publisher solutions this summer and discussing the Blackboard digital content strategy with you at the Digital Content & Upgrade Center.
