Blackboard Launches New Teaching and Learning Solutions Portfolio

Blackboard Inc. has launched new teaching and learning solutions portfolio. The needs-based solutions include various product capabilities that are often deployed together. They were developed and created following extensive discussions with campus leaders, academic technologists, district officials, faculty, and students. All teaching and learning solutions include Blackboard's 'base' solution which goes far beyond the traditional learning management system (LMS) to provide a fully-featured online environment with course delivery, synchronous collaboration tools, mobile apps, and seamless integration with and access to industry content.

Blackboard Integrates Registration and Tracking Tools into Training Environment

Blackboard has updated its training environment for business and government organizations with the integration of a Web-based information system. The environment now offers fully integrated learner registration, tracking, e-commerce, and enterprise reporting systems and tools. The comprehensive management capabilities allow corporations, government agencies, associations and other professional organizations to manage the full lifecycle of learning information from directly within the learning environment and without third party integrations. The Blackboard Registration Module is delivered through a strategic partnership with Genius SIS. With automated registration and self-regulated tracking, the integrated module will give learners more control as they navigate the training environment. Administrators and trainers can easily see learners' progress towards certifications and view a learners' full course history, including classes taken outside of the organization. The training environment can also be used as a revenue source through integrated e-commerce capabilities.
