Learn about new content features available in Blackboard Next Generation
In conjunction with the release of Blackboard Next Generation to be available campus-wide at NIU on May 30, 2011, Blackboard has partnered with McGraw-Hill to deliver enhanced instructional content and tools directly inside Blackboard. NIU instructors will be able to manage McGraw-Hill Connect course content, assignments, and assessments all from within Blackboard. This exclusive partnership provides single sign-on for students and faculty, an integrated gradebook & roster, deeply integrated content and 100% FERPA compliancy.Â
To learn more, please stop by the McGraw-Hill open house on Wednesday, March 2nd anytime between 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Holmes Student Center Room 406. Brief presentations will begin at the top of the hour (10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm). In between each of the presentation times, feel free to drop in and learn more about the partnership in an “open house” format. Light refreshments will be served. McGraw-Hill representatives will be demonstrating the integration with Blackboard Next Generation and sharing more information on this partnership. No advance registration is needed.
