Blackboard 9.1 & McGraw-Hill “Campus” Pilot, Fall Quarter, 2011

During fall quarter of 2011-12, the Office of Information Technology conducted a limited pilot for Blackboard 9.1, with an eye toward a possible campus-wide upgrade by winter quarter, 2011-12 (contingent upon faculty approval via FTAG). Integrated into Blackboard 9.1 is McGraw-Hill’s “Campus” product, a suite of digital learning resources (including McGraw-Hill Connect, a web-based assignment and assessment platform) for faculty and students.  All faculty – whether or not they use a McGraw-Hill title – can instantly browse, search and access the entire library of McGraw-Hill instructional resources and services including eBooks, test banks, PowerPoint slides, animations and learning objects from Blackboard. At the present time, McGraw-Hill is the only publisher that has developed a Blackboard building block for their digital learning resources, but as building blocks are developed by other publishers we will be integrating their digital learning resources into Blackboard as well. Be sure to let your publisher know!
