Your programs. Your revenue.

Blackboard OPX is the online program solution of the future, one in which you own the creative assets and the course content—which means you also control incoming tuition revenue.  Gone are the days of long-term contracts and giving away your hard-earned revenue, with our fee-for-service model you pay only for the services that help you achieve growth.

Get the Support You Need, Without Paying for Anything You Don’t

While the full Blackboard OPX suite is designed to ensure you reach your goals, our fee-for-service model means you only pay for the services your institution needs. Think of it like an unbundled OPM, we have expertise right across the student lifecycle – but will tailor a solution for you based on your specific needs.

Keep Your Finger on the Pulse

Blackboard OPX provides thorough reporting and complete data transparency, while traditional OPMs keep those insights in a “black box” you never see. This means you never miss out on the opportunity to optimize your programs and are constantly uncovering new opportunities for growth.

No More “Cookie Cutter” Solutions

Our data led approach helps create online programs as distinct as your institution. We worked with North Carolina Central University to design and launch two completely new online programs within six months.

“I would highly recommend these services to other institutions who do not have adequate staff to meet the demand of designing and implementing online courses”. – Kimberly Phifer-McGhee, Ed.D. Vice Chancellor for Extended Studies and Student Support, North Carolina Central University

Get the Support You Need at Every Stage of Your Online Program Journey

The path to building sustained enrollment and revenue growth through online programs can have several phases, and Blackboard OPX is designed to at each step in the process. Whether your institution is just starting out or moving into more innovative program design, Blackboard provides the flexibility needed to allow for ongoing growth.

Proud to be OPX Partners
