McGraw-Hill Higher Education Collaborates with Desire2Learn to Enable Seamless Access to Resources via the McGraw-Hill Campus Digital Educational Service
New York and Kitchener-Waterloo, ON, June 19, 2012
McGraw-Hill Higher Education and Desire2Learn Incorporated ("Desire2Learn") today announced an expansion of their collaborative relationship. This relationship will enable a deeper integration of McGraw-Hill Campus, McGraw-Hill's groundbreaking content and course integration service, within Desire2Learn Learning Environment. [snip]
McGraw-Hill Campus grants faculty and students universal access to McGraw-Hill's world-class course solutions and online resources through Desire2Learn Learning Environment - whether or not they use a McGraw-Hill title. The service is available at no additional cost to the institution, and is part of Desire2Learn's commitment to delivering an extensible and flexible platform. McGraw-Hill Campus provides users with single sign-on access to all of McGraw-Hill Education's digital content, streamlining, simplifying and enriching the user experience. With one click, instructors and students can instantly browse, search and access the entire library of McGraw-Hill instructional resources and services including e-books, test banks, PowerPoint slides, animations and learning objects.[snip].
The number one reason professors and students reach out for technical support is due to issues with login and registration. By reducing technical issues for students, faculty and IT administrators, Desire2Learn and McGraw-Hill Education are reducing the amount of time that schools and instructors spend dealing with IT problems and with the integration, the companies will further enhance the learner experience. This underscores Desire2Learn's focus on allowing educators to concentrate on what matters most - teaching and learning - and enabling students to succeed by eliminating obstacles to accessing engaging digital learning.
Nearly 255 higher education institutions have already implemented McGraw-Hill Campus, which is expected to expand further in the coming months. With a future release planned for summer 2012 that integrates grade books, the Desire2Learn/McGraw-Hill collaboration will enable faculty to spend more time teaching and less time on administration.
