Barnes & Noble has already lined up a new partnership with Blackboard Learn intended to benefit its latest educational product, NOOKstudy.
Announced earlier this week, NOOKstudy is a yet-to-be released software program targeted towards students for the organization of study aids like handouts and electronic books.
While there will naturally be a direct connection to the B&N eBookstore in NOOKstudy, there will also be streamlined access from Blackboard Learn for materials related to lessons on that platform.
With the digitization of textbooks, study guides and even course lectures available on iTunes, pretty soon students will never have to go to class!
