Gaggle announced a new application for the Blackboard Learn™ platform that allows Blackboard Learn users worldwide to access the Gaggle widget through a single sign-on within Blackboard Learn. With this one-click access, clients of both Gaggle and Blackboard can easily access information in both systems simultaneously. Widgets are small interactive versions of Gaggle's most popular tools including: the Email Inbox, Calendar, Digital Locker, Blog, Message Board, Homework Drop Box, and the Social Wall. Users can manage their email account, download locker files, edit a Zoho® doc and more.

"The launch of our new Building Block for the Blackboard Learn platform continues our approach of integrating Gaggle with all the major enterprise applications that schools regularly use," said Brett Woudenberg, COO of Gaggle. "Blackboard Inc. is a market leading learning management system, but many of our K-12 customers require the added safety of Gaggle's Web 2.0 tools, which allow schools to provide a safe social learning environment for their students."

Blackboard Building Blocks™ allow clients to incorporate specific add-on tools into the Blackboard Learn platform to address unique challenges. "The flexibility of Blackboard Building Blocks provides our clients with a more customized experience. From open source tools to Blackboard Partner supported extensions, clients can truly build the Blackboard system that's right for them," said Matthew Small, Blackboard Chief Business Officer. Hundreds of extensions from Blackboard Partners and client developers are available on www.blackboardextensions.com.
