Publisher Integrations Updated in Blackboard for FA2019

Cengage & Wiley fully supported in Ultra courses

August 6, 2019 8:06 AM

Several publisher integrations will be updated at the end of summer to leverage modern infrastructure functionality, which will change the way faculty access those tools.

Both Cengage Mindtap & Aplia as well as WileyPLUS will be available in Ultra courses for FA2019. McGraw-Hill Connect will be piloted in Ultra during the FA2019 semester in preparation for full deployment in SP2020. Pearson’s Revel will be supported in Ultra courses, but the Mastering and MyLab series is not yet available.

The updated integrations will allow faculty to deep link to publisher content and synchronize grades on an intermittent cycle. New FAQs will be available to guide faculty in using the integration of publisher content in both Original and Ultra courses.

Since the existing tools must be disabled so the upgraded versions can be activated, faculty should plan to review any student submissions in their publisher integrations and export grades by August 15. 

As always, if you have any questions, please consider the following options:
