Publisher Content

Publisher Content exists in multiple formats for Blackboard Learn and are acquired in a variety of formats.
The best person to tell you about content for your course is your Publisher Representative.

Content can also exist on the Publisher Website that includes supplemental materials, PowerPoints, TestBanks, etc.
These are generally zip files and can be imported into your course.

Testbanks are also available through ExamView, Repondus, TestGen, and Cognero (maybe others).

Building Blocks

Legacy content partner integration Building Blocks for McGraw-Hill Higher Education, Pearson, WileyPLUS, and Cengage Learning will continue to exist and be maintained for a period of time.
