Blackboard and textbook publishers have partnered together to help institutions meet the demands of the next generation of learners. This means instructors now have the option to use a variety of resources, assignments and tests directly from textbook publishers and link it inside of their Blackboard course. Once the Blackboard course is paired with the textbook, all gradable content the student completes through the publisher’s website is recorded automatically inside the instructor’s Blackboard grade centre.
