As part of the Monash ecosystem, it was felt that the traditional teaching methods used at the College needed to be revolutionized. The challenge was integrating technology that fits the classroom’s purpose and sustaining it. Working closely with Blackboard Open LMS has assisted us to make the necessary changes in a timely manner. Our college-wide, revolutionized, innovative course delivery has resulted in outstanding staff satisfaction feedback in professional development — 91.4% — resulting in increased TEL in the classroom across the College and better student engagement.

Montana Digital Academy

"PLD has been a game-changer. It’s one of the ways in which Montana Digital Academy is breaking down the barriers to make learning as simple as possible. By compelling the linear pathway, we help teach credit recovery students how to learn. We build a linear learning path that chunks learning into bite-size pieces so students can experience small successes to motivate them to move through the course.”
