Blackboard Learning Management System

by Jeff Barr | on | in Cool Sites |

Concord_bb_amz3_1Concord USA has developed and released, free-of-charge, an Amazon course item module for colleges and schools that use the learning management system from Blackboard Inc. This module allows course developers to include books and other items from amazon.com in their Blackboard online courses.

Here’s how they describe their product:

The easy-to-install Concord Masterfile software module will provide the thousands of educational institutions currently using Blackboard with the potential to generate referral fee revenue from Amazons associate program, by having their students order recommended items from amazon.com from within each online course. For example, instructors can include recommended books in the relevant section of a course and have the details, thumbnail and price shown automatically. A student need only click on the item in the course to be connected to amazon.com and complete the purchase transaction. The institution can specify their Amazon associate ID as part of the easy setup.
