Cdigix Brings Digital Media Platform to Blackboard Courses

Digital media developer Cdigix has expanded its C-Labs digital media platform to provide support for Blackboard environments on the course level.

C-Labs is an online tool that allows students and faculty to post and view (or listen to) digital media with the aim of complying with copyright restrictions. To this end, it provides digital rights management functionality, including encryption, licensing, distribution, and authentication. Based on the Blackboard Building Blocks architecture, C-Labs provides digital media management, delivery, and access to faculty and students through Blackboard systems and now allows instructors to integrate digital media content directly into their courses.

According to the company, "Once logged in to a course, students simply click 'Tools' on the left hand navigation bar, and then click the 'C-Labs' tab. All assigned media titles are displayed for easy access, viewing and management. Students have the flexibility of downloading media files to their computer or transferring them to a portable device, such as an iPod."

The enhanced integration is available through the C-Labs service at no additional charge. Further information can be found here.
