Stocks in this article: PSO

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackboard Inc. and Pearson today announced a new integration for using Pearson's leading learning solution – MyLab / Mastering – within Blackboard's flagship learning management system (LMS).

The systems integration includes single sign-on, gradebook, improved workflows and state of the art Web services that enable instructors to find and access MyLab / Mastering – including personalized study paths, customizable content, responsive learning tools and real-time evaluation and diagnostics – directly in Blackboard Learn™.

The solution gives faculty quick access to Pearson's tools, assignments and learning analytics, including the ability to transfer grade information to the Blackboard Learn gradebook and create direct links from MyLab / Mastering programs. Instructors are able to customize their courses by choosing their content and rearranging the items in the content area and course navigation bar.

"With over 850 MyLab / Mastering solutions included in this integration, this is a real value-add for Blackboard Learn customers and an important part of our overall digital content strategy," said Matthew Small, chief business officer at Blackboard. "We're excited to offer users a combined solution that helps educators find and use high-quality learning tools from Pearson directly within the LMS."

"Now that our customers can access MyLab / Mastering directly within Blackboard Learn 9.1, together we've created a more convenient way for instructors and students to benefit from the powerful teaching and learning support these programs offer," said Jerome Grant, Chief Learning Officer at Pearson Higher Education North America.

This latest collaboration provides a new level of convenience for users and is part of the companies' ongoing efforts to make it easier for teachers and students to find, use and share digital content and tools. Both companies are working closely to ensure that instructors and students who access Pearson's learning solutions within Blackboard Learn are well supported through Web services.
