Academic leaders are struggling with the increase in non-traditional students. More working students, more students who are re-entering the professional workforce and more diverse students all need the added flexibility and access that online learning platforms offer.
Beyond the obvious revenue generation benefits, online learning platforms can also provide an improved educational experience. When your institution uses Blackboard it benefits from a more personalized approach to online learning—face-to-face collaboration, interactive social learning tools, and instant access to course materials and lectures—no matter where your students happen to be.
Blackboard Learn™ Release 9.1, the most widely adopted LMS in the world, offers Improved peer-to-peer learning, flexible social learning communities, better relationships between faculty and students—even if they are separated physically by thousands of miles—with integrated teaching tools like discussion boards, embedded multimedia and social networking capabilities.
All online learning platforms are not created equal. Explore the highlights of Blackboard Learn 9.1 in the Feature Showcase.
With the Blackboard Collaborate™ platform your institution can engage students with a better way to conduct peer reviews, promote group learning, offer students assistance when they need it, and create a social learning structure that can exceed face-to-face learning.
CourseSites is a free, hosted online course creation and facilitation service that empowers college and university instructors to add a web–based component to their courses, or even host an entire course on the Internet. You even choose your own URL, so students can find your page easily.
