Cengage Learning, a leading global provider of innovative teaching, learning and research solutions, today 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 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 Sakai Foundation is pleased to have Cengage Learning and Unicon contribute this work to Sakai CLE,” said Ian Dolphin, Executive Director of the Sakai Foundation. “LTI is a particularly important standard for the future of Sakai. The fact that Cengage Learning is working through the standards process and partnering with a trusted Sakai Commercial Affiliate like Unicon to work with the core Sakai developers and contribute the code as open source is a strong indication that they understand how to collaborate with higher education.”

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.

“We’re glad to see publishers like Cengage implementing open standards like IMS LTI. Their approach lets higher education combine best-of-breed content, functionality, and management to implement their preferred approach to teaching and learning. We are proud to have Unicon involved in this endeavor,” said John C. Blakley, CEO of Unicon.

“One of the greatest benefits of our MindLinks integration is the ability for us to work with LMS providers in order to utilize the best platform features, while integrating our content and solutions into an environment in which their customers are most comfortable,” said Bill Rieders, Executive Vice President, Global Strategy & Business Development, Cengage Learning.
