Districts Save Resources and Improve Outcomes

Innovative K-12 schools and districts are using Blackboard to both save resources and improve outcomes for students. This short video highlights three institutions who have successfully reduced costs by publishing online, providing online professional development for teachers, and streamlining administrative processes. Watch the video >

 We had to train nearly 5,000 teachers to use a new product for taking attendance and entering grades.  The training was scheduled to last for four hours per teacher.  Each teacher would have to be paid $25 per hour for summer time stipend.  That cost alone would have been $500,000 (5,000x4x$25).  Using Blackboard to deliver the training we had zero costs associated with stipends.  This cost savings does not consider the time and labor savings associated with the logistics of planning, scheduling and handling the payment of teachers.
