- AttendancePro – Provides a variety of ways to track educational attendance and engagement, allowing schools to report back on Title IV funding questions
- RetentionPro – Evaluates the issues of student persistence and retention from two different perspectives. By identifying primary student risk drivers and overlaying these results with a business process review that evaluates institutional capabilities in competency areas with proven impact on retention, Blackboard is able to identify where there is room to make the greatest and swiftest impact on student retention. With our breadth and depth of experience in educational best practices, we offer a customized gap analysis and recommend a tailored path forward to help an institution effectively engage with their at-risk students and help see them through to graduation.
Capabilities for a Successful Online Program
Online Program Management
Blackboard has developed a strategic approach build around the key capabilities needed for a successful online program, and we customize our solution to your needs. We then employ proprietary rubrics, benchmarks and self-assessments to drive the process, define the solutions, and gauge readiness to execute against five capabilities: Planning & Development, Curriculum & Courses, Enabling Technologies, Marketing & Recruitment, and Student Support.
In order to ensure success of your learning programs, technology adoption is essential. To drive adoption, we'll train your administrators, faculty and staff so they can teach others about its features and functionality. We've developed a number of courses and workshops designed to bring their Blackboard skills to the next level, with options ranging from online courses or onsite delivery, to regional training and licensed training materials.
