Blackboard Partners With Ricoh on Document Imaging
Document imaging technology provider Ricoh will partner with Blackboard to integrate its tools with the ed tech company's teaching and learning environments.
At the Educause 2014 conference, where the partnership was made public earlier this week, the two companies provided a demonstration of the first example of the integration, "a new ability to scan paper documents on a multifunction product and have them automatically flow to a student or faculty member's Blackboard Learn account via Ricoh's Integrated Cloud Environment," according to a news release.
"Our work with Ricoh will seamlessly extend the Blackboard learning environment to the world of hard copy capture and distribution while preserving the signature fluidity of our technology," said Kathleen Vieira, vice president of business development at Blackboard, in a prepared statement. "The goal is a streamlined experience and, as always, a sharp focus on learning results."
