Anthology Partnerships Program FAQs

Prospective Partners

  1. What are the benefits of becoming an Anthology Partner?

    Through the Anthology Partnerships Programme, we’ll work with you to customise a partnership offering designed to achieve your specific goals and objectives, whether expanding your customer base, increasing adoption, or reducing your cost of delivering seamlessly connected digital solutions.

    If you’re a content provider or have a technology solution, an established business or a start-up, our partnerships programme can give you a solid platform for success.

  2. How do I integrate with Anthology products?

    To integrate with Blackboard Learn, our partners use the IMS Global Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard and REST APIs. To integrate with Anthology products, our partners rely on REST and OData APIs.

    Our commitment to the IMS Standards First initiative allows commercial software vendors and non-profit organisations to develop customisations and integrations that enhance online campus experiences worldwide. You can find additional details on our Anthology Developer Portal and our Anthology Developer Documentation website.

  3. What are marketing activity credits?

    Partners at the Bronze or above tiers get a certain number of credits to use throughout the contract year on various co-marketing activities.
