Blackboard has partnered with K12 Inc. (K12), the largest provider of online education in K-12, to deliver a solution that joins award-winning curriculum adapted for higher education and proven online instruction of K12 with the educational technology expertise of Blackboard. Together, we created a solution that addresses remediation needs in higher education.
Our solution empowers students with anytime, anyplace learning through high-touch instruction, mentoring and premium curriculum delivered in an online classroom environment. Together with K12, after extensive research and pilot testing, Blackboard has developed a holistic, online formula that expands and diversifies traditional higher education developmental education programs.
Blackboard DevEd courses combine the qualified instructors and wealth of experience of K12 with the powerful personalization and interactivity tools offered in Blackboard’s platforms. Using this innovative solution, students are now better able to master concepts, enhance study skills and feel more engaged throughout the learning process.
