Use ConnectTxt to efficiently reach your community

A text message system can help you get your message to your community quickly and easily—and most importantly make sure they read your message and respond.

According to a recent Forrester report, SMS remains the workhorse of mobile — with over over 6 billion SMS messages sent per day. Forrester predicts that by 2017 SMS will still remain significant and be an important part of the mobile landscape.

Blackboard now offers ConnectTxt—a text message system specifically designed for two-way text messaging communication.

You can use ConnectTxt to create SMS communications for:

  • Higher Education
  • Business
  • Government
  • K-12

Some applications we are seeing the text message system used for include anti-bullying, admissions, customer promotions, and appointment reminders. With Blackboard ConnectTxt, you can quickly send out a text message to a few or many people and easily receive a response.

ConnectTxt can be used by almost anyone as the process of sending out and replying to messages is very simple. You can also use the Blackboard text message system to create live, timed mobile polls and generate QR codes to include on printed materials.
