About Blackboard

We Help You Solve Your Most Critical Challenges in Education to Drive Student Success

The education landscape is continuously evolving. It’s why we’re focused on providing you the technology, tools and support to transform to meet the specific needs of your students. We are your partner in change—working alongside you to enable success for your institution or organization with innovative technologies and services.

We Believe in the Power of Technology to Expand Access to Education

We believe that everyone—regardless of geography, financial situation, stage of life or disability—deserves access to education. To support your goals, our solutions deliver:

Our EdTech Platform Approach

We believe that the future demands more than an LMS. Therefore, at Blackboard, we have shifted to a model where, rather than building individual products, our focus is on something much bigger—something no one else in the market can deliver—an integrated, flexible edtech platform to provide you with a uniquely connected experience across a broad array of capabilities aimed at driving student success and institutional performance.

To meet your needs now and in the future, our edtech platform approach provides three critical components: 

  • a design and architecture approach that enables a seamless user experience across a broad set of capabilities that will continue to evolve over time 
  • ability to evolve your digital environment in a way that makes the most sense for you and your institution and 
  • the power to enable better outcomes for your institution, instructors, and students 

This unified approach to building, delivering, and extending Blackboard solutions creates a connected and extensible educational technology ecosystem...much more than a learning management system.
