Yesterday at Educause in Dallas we announced that Blackboard--a major provider of enterprise software to educational institutions--has joined the Google Enterprise Professional program. The combination of Blackboard's education-focused software with Google enterprise search products will help the large number of universities using those products make it easy for their faculty and students to find exactly the information they're looking for.
So far, Blackboard has created several Google OneBox for Enterprise modules for searching course catalogs and other Blackboard sources, as well as completed an integration with Google Scholar. We're looking forward to seeing what other interesting things they do with the Google Search Appliance, Google Mini, and Google Apps for Education.
