McGraw- Hill Higher Education and Blackboard have teamed up.
Blackboard, the Web-based course-management system, has partnered with McGraw-Hill to better allow students and faculty to use online materi- als and activities to complement face-to-face teaching. Blackboard features exciting social learning and teaching tools that foster more logical, visually impactful and active learning opportunities for students. You’ll transform your closed-door classrooms into communities where students remain con- nected to their educational experience 24 hours a day.
This partnership allows you and your students access to McGraw-Hill’s Connect™ and Create™ right from within your Blackboard course—all with one single sign-on.
Not only do you get single sign-on with Connect™ and Create™, you also get deep integration of McGraw-Hill content and content engines right in Blackboard. Whether you’re choosing a book for your course or build- ing Connect™ assignments, all the tools you need are right where you want them—inside of Blackboard.
Gradebooks are now seamless. When a student completes an integrated Connect™ assignment, the grade for that assignment automatically (and instantly) feeds your Blackboard grade center.
McGraw-Hill and Blackboard can now offer you easy access to industry leading technology and content, whether your campus hosts it, or we do. Be sure to ask your local McGraw-Hill representative for details.
