Barnes & Noble has been rather busy recently, and hot on the heels of its announcement of its NOOKstudy, the company has announced a partnership with education firm Blackboard, which aims to make it easier for students to access and use interactive e-textbooks as part of their online course experience. They will be working together to enable students to access and purchase e-textbooks and other course related materials directly from Blackboard Learn, the company’s Web-based teaching and learning platform. Instructors will also be able to assign content from Barnes & Noble’s catalog of e-books, e-textbooks, and other material. Such a move will also help to promote the NOOKstudy software application from Barnes & Noble aimed at the student market.
