Magna Campus makes good on the two biggest requests from current subscribers of our digital products: direct access from their LMS and improved reporting.

Magna Publications today announced the immediate availability of Magna Campus™ on the Blackboard Learn™ platform. Magna Campus provides access to Magna Publications’ vast newsletter and online seminar archives via the Blackboard Learn system.

By offering users a single sign-on from within their own learning management system (LMS), Magna Campus is changing the way educators stay current on teaching practices, pedagogical trends, academic leadership challenges, legal issues in higher education, and more.

Developed by Magna Publications, Magna Campus is comprised of thousands of professional development resources, including research-based white papers, online seminars, video programs, and timely newsletters, all created and delivered by leading educators and experts in the field. Campuses can customize their subscription by selecting any combination of the available products.

Magna Campus subscribers will enjoy these benefits:

  • Convenient, single sign-on through Blackboard Learn. No more having to remember separate usernames and passwords, or navigate away from the LMS platform to get to your Magna subscription-based resources.
  • Anytime, anywhere access to all Magna subscriptions in one place.
  • The ability to easily search and share select content.
  • Responsive website design for access from any computer or mobile device.
  • Reporting functionality that lets account administrators measure how subscriptions are being utilized within a department or across campus.

“Magna Campus makes good on the two biggest requests from current subscribers of our digital products: direct access from their LMS and improved reporting,” said David Burns, publisher, Magna Publications. “The one-click access now makes it easy for faculty and administrators to get the teaching and learning resources they need, when and where it’s convenient for them, and through a system they’re already comfortable using. For the account administrator, it delivers a more streamlined workflow, plus a whole new set of tools for demonstrating return on investment.”
