Blackboard Intelligence

Blackboard Intelligence is a complete suite of data management, performance dashboard, and reporting solutions to help you understand and optimize every dimension of your college or university.

Analytics for Learn and Student Management modules surface and integrate data from multiple sources to give you information about every aspect of the student life cycle. With rich data about the experience of your students as they navigate your institution, you can increase enrollment, cut costs to students, improve learning outcomes, and raise graduation rates.

Finance, HR, and Advancement modules help to optimize institutional performance by providing self-service access to data in a way that simplifies reporting, continuous service improvement, and strategic planning.

Educational data mining with Blackboard Intelligence

Bridge the divide

How can educators connect information on students’ classroom challenges with their progress in degree programs? How can data about what works for students inform high-quality instructional design? How can instructors get the information they need to identify and reach out to underperforming students before it’s too late? How can institutions use an education data warehouse to empower students to take personal responsibility for their learning?

Analytics for Learn offers unparalleled access to current data about learning activities – enabling administrators, instructional designers, instructors, and students to align what happens in the classroom with the institution’s retention and graduation goals.
