Impact On Mission

The military is rapidly recognizing the relationship between learning activities and Impact on Mission (IOM). But recognition is one thing, implementation is quite another. That’s because many existing systems are only in place to manage and administer activities like registrations and certifications.

Moving beyond the limited capabilities of your legacy LMS means offering instruction that’s directly related to battlefield requirements, not outdated theories or strategies of little practical use. You also need to positively impact speed to competency. After all, your service men and women must grasp training material and concepts as quickly as possible if they’re to respond effectively to real-world demands and deployment priorities. And you need the flexibility to adapt training strategies at a moment’s notice to adequately prepare troops for evolving battlefield conditions.

How does Blackboard Learn™ for Military achieve IOM? It’s a system built on sound pedagogical techniques and applied to online learning. We also provide the tools you need for fast, intuitive content creation and course deployment. And we make it flexible enough for you to offer a blended learning approach where in-person instruction seamlessly meets electronic learning. The result is a solution that doesn’t need to replace your existing LMS, but one that transforms it into a highly effective and efficient learning environment.

The Blackboard Learn platform is up to the challenges faced by today’s military. It’s agile enough to respond to rapidly changing in-theater situations. Robust enough to accommodate all the resources needed to facilitate skills mastery. And intuitive enough to quickly engage learners – wherever they are stationed.
