  • 10 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT GO-TO GUIDE FOR GETTING MORE ROI FROM YOUR TEACHING & LEARNING SOLUTION
  • WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW You know that education is changing. More and more students are non-traditional. Alternative and learner-centric models are emerging. Analytics are driving actions for critical outcomes. And everything is going online and mobile. What you may not know is that Blackboard can help you change faster. We live and breathe education and the business behind it. For every stage of the student lifecycle from admissions to academics to outcomes measurement, we’ve got your online education needs covered. Here are 10 things you may not know about Blackboard that may make you think differently about what our partnership can bring to your institution.
  • WE KNOW STUDENTS. 1 THEY LOOK ONLINE. We call them Active Learners. They’re no longer confined to a classroom. They’re armed with laptops, smartphones, and tablets. They learn at their convenience. To stay relevant, you must embrace and satisfy them as a consumer of your educational experience. What does this take? Mobile apps for immediacy and anytime, anywhere learning. Collaboration tools for live connection to faculty, services, and each other. And tools for vibrant, social interaction right within their online learning environment. Check out Taking it Mobile: Untethered Learning for the 21st Century Student.
  • 2 THOUSANDS OF COURSE TITLES YOURS AND OURS Based on a 2013 survey of 500 educators, 54% said they regularly bring digital content – textbooks, in-house content, free web content, archived lectures, and more – into their courses. Whether your faculty prefers commercial course content or their own, Blackboard provides opportunities to add compelling, interactive digital content to online courses. Students seamlessly access learning content with a simple, single click from the Blackboard LMS. And they can view it from their mobile devices, too. Browse our Extensions Catalog.
  • 3 WE’RE IN THE BUSINESS OF STUDENT SUCCESS According to the National Center for Education Statistics, colleges lose an average of 25% of their first-year students every year. Institutions that cannot demonstrate improvements in outcomes and retention risk loss of enrollment income, accreditation, and even financial aid funding. The keys to identifying at-risk students and helping them succeed? Technology for outcomes assessment, analytics on student engagement and learning, and solid intervention practices and tactics. Learn more.
  • 4 FLIPPED, BLENDED, SOCIAL IT’S ALL COVERED The flipped classroom has gotten a lot of buzz and is emerging as a best practice for online learning. Why flip? To engage learners with rich content and active exploration, blend learning modalities, and encourage more student-instructor interaction. With Blackboard’s holistic, deeply integrated solution, a wide spectrum of learning is possible – flipped, experiential, synchronous, social, mobile, and more. Northern Illinois University relies on our full platform suite to develop faculty and expand online options for students. Read more.
  • 5 WE KEEP PACE WITH YOUR INNOVATIONS Education innovation case in point: MOOCs. An emerging experience of unprecedented scale. While online programs have become standard, MOOCs are slowly gaining acceptance. By 2016, 43% of schools plan to offer MOOCs. Blackboard has partnered with nearly 70 institutions to offer open courses. Our free, fully-supported cloud service enables institutions to run MOOCs in an environment separate from their LMS. And it’s familiar to the millions of learners who’ve used Blackboard before. Start your own MOOC when you’re ready.
  • 6 WE TURN YOUR FACULTY INTO ADVOCATES Quality online programs need faculty advocates. As the University of Southern Mississippi says, “It’s not a matter of taking your course materials, dumping them online, and hoping the students can figure out what they train on and how to use the LMS – it’s how you become a successful online instructor.” To assist in cultivating online pedagogy and effective practices, Blackboard offers many free resources and programs as well as custom consulting services. And, with a global community of over 30,000 clients, we make it easy to learn from the best – your peers.
  • 7 YOU CAN LEAVE THE WORRYING TO US As your institution grows, you may look to the cloud to reduce IT overhead associated with managing your online learning system. At the same time, reliability is crucial, as online learning is a fundamental element of your institution’s educational strategy. With Blackboard private cloud, you can leave it all to us. Secure and reliable? You bet. The U.S. Army’s learning institutions rely on Blackboard’s hosting services to and ensure continuous, on-demand learning for their students. Read more.
  • 8 WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE It’s no secret that education is becoming truly global. Students outside the U.S. now make up a much larger percentage of the global, education-ready population. And as education becomes a global commodity, there will be significant changes to how it’s delivered. Blackboard enables reach to global learners while keeping the learning experience personal. The unified learning environment is available in 15 languages. So students can learn, interact, and collaborate in the language that each prefers. More languages. More enrollments. More top-line growth.
  • 9 WE’VE BEEN IN YOUR SHOES Learning isn’t just about the classes you offer. The success of your institution depends on transformation to stay competitive, top-line healthy, and relevant. We get that. By having Blackboard as a partner in supporting your strategic initiatives, you gain expertise from those who’ve spent years employed in higher education. Our Education Services team can help take you take action, so your vision of growth, efficiency, and the experience you provide to students becomes reality.
