McGraw-Hill 2.2: Unlocking More Power Within the Blackboard Learn Platform

Blackboard and McGraw-Hill have joined forces to help institutions meet the demands of the next generation of learners. Ubiquitous access, flexibility and dynamic digital content are the new thresholds for learners’ expectations. That’s why Blackboard and McGraw-Hill are committed to continually driving the print-to-digital transformation.

Next Generation Integration

Trusted and proven, this is the deepest, state-of-the-art integration of publisher content within a learning management system: a combined solution that offers students and instructors a single point of access for courses, content and learning tools. Building upon the success of our initial integration, we are now delivering even more content and tools directly inside the Blackboard Learn platform1.
