What is Blackboard?

Businesses and educators looking to reach and teach their learners and employees can look to Blackboard for help. This learning management system (LMS) creates and delivers online courses to recipients even with little to no face-to-face meetings. The system has a customizable open architecture, a course management system, and scalable design that can easily merge with authentication processes and student information systems. Blackboard users have four specific modules to choose from, depending on the learner demographics they are targeting: K-12, Higher Education, Government, and Business. A number of applications and business systems can also easily integrate with Blackboard, such as Learning Environment, BrainHoney, Epsilen, Pearson LearningStudio, Sakai Collaborative, Moodle Learning Management System, and itsLearning. Users also only need to pay for what they need, as Blackboard is quote-based.
