Blackboard Course Cartridges
Blackboard Course Cartridges are pre-packaged course materials, ready to use in Blackboard courses. They contain a variety of materials that can include slides, documents, multimedia files, links to related websites, test banks, and quizzes, all of professional editorial quality. The cartridge materials often correlate to a textbook or eBook, although some cartridges are meant to be used stand-alone. All Cartridge materials can be customized once they've been downloaded to your specific coursesite.
In the Blackboad Course Catalog, each publisher has provided a general description of each cartridge. In many cases, the publisher has also included information about demos, trials, and information on how to obtain a Download Key. Publisher contact information is included for each cartridge.
You will need to work with your publisher to acquire a download key before the cartridge can be loaded. Cost of a cartridge varies from publisher to publisher. Also, some cartridges require students to purchase codes.
