There's always something happening in Blackboard's world
Institutions do have different needs and many prefer the unique advantages of self-hosting or managed hosting. So the fact that Blackboard is now able to support those modes of delivery alongside SaaS gives schools unprecedented amount of choice as they decide how they want to work on their hosting environments. Blackboard is the only company that can make this offering.
With the acquisition, Blackboard plans to reinvent and revitalize its product portfolio. Blackboard demonstrated how Requestec’s WebRTC platform can enhance educational collaboration at its user conference earlier this summer.
There is often a great deal of pressure, be it from families, colleagues, education systems, or culture, to choose one perfect career path. To find a job that does it all: engages one’s talents, makes plenty of money, and reflects well on one’s family. Individuals are led to believe that if they fall short of this perfection they are depriving themselves of happiness and not living up to their true potential. Job Genie is a result of qualitative research with students that indicated a large amount of apprehension around key academic decisions, such as picking a school, major, or career path.
Blackboard acquired rival campus card vendor and cloud-system provider, CardSmith. The acquisition broadens Blackboard’s system deployment capabilities adding an established software-as-a-service option to its traditional on-premise offering.
