Digital Diversity: Multi-institutional Access to Distributed Course Resources

Thursday, January 1, 2004


Enabling student access to shared course resources across a multi-institutional consortium is challenging at best. This session presents a case study in the use of Shibboleth (open source software that supports Web-based, inter-institutional authorization) and the Blackboard course management system and offers suggestions to campuses facing similar challenges. This presentation is offered in collaboration with the NSF Middleware Initiative-EDIT Consortium of Internet2, EDUCAUSE, and SURA.
