Blackboard and Cengage Learning plan for users of Cengage Learning's rich digital learning solutions and content to gain seamless access through automatic sign-on and gradebook integration, creating a simpler and more intuitive user experience for both instructors and students using Blackboard Learn. This integration would be made possible through Cengage Learning's MindLinks, a standards-based, interoperable, Web-services architecture that would allow for deeper integration of Cengage Learning's digital suite, including the MindTap product, into the Blackboard Learn platform. This integration is part of a larger Blackboard effort to help make it easier for clients to get the most out of digital content and tools within the learning platform.
Utilizing MindLinks, a new free service from Cengage Learning that allows for deeper integration between Cengage Learning and Blackboard Learn, instructors and students can now access Cengage Learning digital products, including CourseMate and MindTap, directly within the Blackboard Learn platform*. This is just the beginning. MindLinks serves as the delivery mechanism for Cengage’s ongoing strategy to integrate even more digital products into Blackboard Learn
