Academic Effectiveness

Institutions are designing educational technology ecosystems to meet the specific needs of their learners. It's an initiative that's designed to create more flexibility and efficient engagement for educators and compelling student experiences, together driving improved institutional outcomes. With an open, scalable, and integrated platform that simplifies integration across existing systems, institutions are driving excellence throughout the student's journey.

Education Insight

Institutions are leveraging data that is accessible, relevant and actionable to inform decisions and change behaviours. It's a strategic shift that uses data from all touchpoints and delivers insights at every level, providing the right information, to the right person, at the right time.

Our EdTech Platform Approach

We believe that the future demands more than an LMS. Therefore, at Blackboard, we have shifted to a model where, rather than building individual products, our focus is on something much bigger – something no one else in the market can deliver –  an integrated, flexible EdTech platform to provide you with a uniquely connected experience across a broad array of capabilities aimed at driving student success and institutional performance.

LMS fitting into our 3 pillars of education.

To meet your needs now and in the future, our EdTech platform approach provides three critical components:

  • a design and architecture approach that enables a seamless user experience across a broad set of capabilities that will continue to evolve over time
  • ability to evolve your digital environment in a way that makes the most sense for you and your institution and
  • the power to enable better outcomes for your institution, instructors, and students

This unified approach to building, delivering, and extending Blackboard solutions creates a connected and extensible educational technology ecosystem...much more than a learning management system.
