A SOLUTION UNLIKE ANY OTHER

Blackboard DevEd is a new approach to remedial education that can help expand and diversify your developmental education strategy — while helping students achieve success. Blackboard DevEd empowers students by combining anytime, anyplace learning with high-touch instruction, mentoring and online curriculum, all delivered on Blackboard technology.

MEETING THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF STUDENTS

Many students today lack the necessary preparation to succeed in college-level classes. Whether it's a student who hasn't yet grasped the fundamentals of mathematics or it's a returning student who requires a refresher—the need for developmental education is growing.

Meeting these demands can be challenging for institutions that face increasing resource constraints. That's why Blackboard has partnered with K12 Inc. (K12), the largest provider of proprietary curriculum and online school programs for students in kindergarten through high school in the U.S., to deliver a solution that joins the award-winning curriculum and proven online instruction of K12 with the educational technology expertise of Blackboard.
