Blackboard Connect is the leading Public and Emergency Notification System in Higher Ed [1]

With Blackboard Connect you’ll have an easier, more effective way to inform, update and involve your community with targeted, relevant messages. Students, faculty, and community can go to a centralized database and enter their preferred mode of communication—text, voice, email, or social media. Later when a message or alert needs to be sent out, safety officers can quickly and efficiently send a tailored message—in a matter of minutes. They can see who received it and when. So you know everyone was notified.
