Cengage Learning to Improve Interoperability With Sakai Courseware Management Platform

Cengage Learning, a global provider of teaching, learning, and research solutions, announced a strategic partnership with Unicon to improve interoperability of Cengage Learning’s digital content and solutions within the open source Sakai courseware management platform. The integration will enhance the implementation of the IMS LTI standard (Learning Tools Interoperability) that is developed and maintained by the Sakai community. All source code developed in this partnership will be contributed back to the Sakai project under an open source license.

The collaboration leverages the power of Cengage Learning’s MindLinks integration to deliver improved ease of use for students, instructors, and administrators. MindLinks is a new service provided by Cengage Learning to allow for deeper integration of Cengage Learning’s digital suite into an institution’s existing Learning Management System. The service works by using portable links that allow two-way communication between a Learning Management System and a Cengage digital product. Full integration via MindLinks is planned for users of Cengage Learning digital solutions including Aplia, CourseMate, CengageNow, and MindTap, which will include single sign on and seamless links to content and gradebook export.

Unicon, Inc. is a provider of IT consulting services for the education market. Unicon works closely with colleges, universities, and corporations to find the best solutions to meet their business challenges.
