Publisher content

  • Blackboard supports digital content from a wide range of textbook publishers and digital content providers. This material is referred to as Course Cartridges in Blackboard 9.1, and it is made available to you via the publisher. To upload a cartridge into a course, you must obtain an Instructor Download Key from the publisher; this key is then used to automatically upload the content from the publisher's server to Fairfield's Blackboard site. You may also need to provide your students with Access Keys to provide a one-time authorization to use the publishers' material.
