On July 13, 2011, Pearson Education and Blackboard announced plans to integrate Pearson’s MyLab and Mastering programs with the Blackboard Learn online teaching and learning platform – providing users with a convenient, seamless transition between systems.
Pearson’s MyLab and Mastering programs this year are projected to have more than 9 million student registrations at higher education institutions, many of whom use Blackboard’s learning management system. The announcement was made at BbWorld® 2011, Blackboard’s largest user conference, which took place in Las Vegas the week of July 11.
“The MyLab and Mastering programs have proven a resounding success at improving student performance and institutional effectiveness around the globe. The integration of the MyLab and Mastering programs at local institutions that use Blackboard gives our customers a more convenient way to access the powerful teaching and learning support these programs offer,” said Jim Behnke, Chief Learning Officer at Pearson.
The announcement follows a decade of collaboration between Pearson and Blackboard, starting with the launch in 2001 of Pearson’s CourseCompass™ and MyMathLab,™ which now serves more than 3 million higher education mathematics students annually.
As part of the partnership, Pearson becomes a Blackboard Strategic Partner™ in the Blackboard Partnerships Program.™
