The Northwestern University has been working to integrate Google Apps Education Edition with Blackboard, one of the predominant providers of educational technology. At the BB World conference, Northwestern is unveiling a Blackboard Building Block called "Bboogle" that they’ve built and are releasing to the community as open source. Building Block includes single sign-on, automated account provisioning, and automated sharing of Google Documents and Calendars through Blackboard course sites.
