Charleston, SC, USA, July 14, 2016 -- In an effort to make it easier for private schools to connect with third-party learning tools, Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB) announced that onCampus(R), its learning management system (LMS), is Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) certified giving users the capability to plug into external tools that pass through content, roster and gradebook information in a standardized way. By leveraging onCampus’ LTI certification, Blackbaud also now integrates with Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook to streamline user experience and save time for educators.
"The latest integration between Blackbaud and Microsoft improves classroom efficiency and provides teachers with a unique pairing of two innovative education tools," said Travis Warren, president of Blackbaud’s K-12 Private Schools Group. "By opening our products to LTI provider tools and streamlining workflows through our partnership with Microsoft, we’re making it easier for teachers, students and parents to use the tools that supplement instruction, grading and reporting tasks."
