Blackboard and Mobility | CourseSites Conversations | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

The modern college student has multiple technological devices that they utilize on a regular – typically daily – basis. Additionally, the makeup of students has shifted strongly toward non-traditional students, which now make up 73% of all undergraduate students. In respect to the number of mobile devices that are available, out of 7 billion people on the planet there are an overwhelming 5 billion mobile phones! While realizing that this means students spend quite a bit of times using mobile devices, what many of us did not realize is the way in which students are accessing information on those devices. Rather than simply accessing information via the internet, students spend more time accessing information via a mobile app. Individuals are also spending more and more time each week accessing social media sites, and most prefer to communicate through these sites instead of email.

Blackboard Inc.: The Rise of the New “Online Learning” and the Race for Profits - e-Literate | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

In organizing the resignation of University of Virginia President Theresa Sullivan, Rector Helen E. Dragas may have expressed the concerns of many higher education boards of directors about the impact and effective use of education technology. Other Presidents and Chancellors may now have a similar career-threatening incentive. History in technology suggests a wave of implementation of “online courses” will follow when decision-makers are presented with similar press enthusiasm for a technology.

Ottawa U Signs 'Game Changer' Deal To Expand Online Program -- Campus Technology

Ottawa U Signs 'Game Changer' Deal To Expand Online Program -- Campus Technology | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
Ottawa University, a 7,000-student institution, has just signed a first-of-its-kind agreement to help it deliver on a major program expansion.

 

Ottawa will work with Blackboard to launch Project Virtuoso, an online initiative that will allow any student in any state to have synchronous and asynchronous interactions with faculty members and fellow students. The project is part of Ottawa's long-range strategic plan, called Vision 2020.

 

This would be a new direction for Blackboard, which is the leader in learning management systems and offers a number of other technologies for education environments, including mobile, collaboration, campus IDs, and analytics. What's new in this case is that Blackboard will also work with faculty members in helping them develop their expertise in delivering online courses.

Blackboard makes a play in online course development | Inside Higher Ed | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

Blackboard has become the latest company to get into the business of helping colleges and universities build online programs.

 

The company, which built its education technology empire on selling software and implementation support, has upped investment in its “online program management services” in an effort to compete with a growing number of entities that are taking aim at the many colleges that are scrambling to reassert, or reinvent, their brands on the increasingly crowded frontier of online higher education.

Blackboard's New Platform Strategy - e-Literate

Blackboard's New Platform Strategy - e-Literate | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend the BbWorld conference and conduct a private interview with Chief Technology Officer and President of Academic Platforms Ray Henderson.1 What I learned is that the company is embarking on a fairly radical, high-risk/high-reward strategy of re-architecting both their platform and their business model. The implications of what they are attempting are much larger than you might infer from the press releases.
