At Blackboard, we started out with a unique idea - if we are not learning something new everyday, we are not moving forward. Right now, there is a great opportunity to reimagine education, from pre-school through lifelong learning and across the student experience. In the next decade, we will see an incredible influx of new ideas that challenge the status quo and support learners in new ways. As we continue to write our story, we’re working with you to solve some of the biggest problems in education. As a result, we’ve built the best technologies and solutions to help advance our industry in meaningful ways. But we’re not building new learning products; we’re building a new way for learning to happen. Our goal is to make learning more desirable, accessible, and meaningful for learners. By doing this, we have a shared sense of purpose with teachers, administrators and leaders at all levels that are working to improve outcomes for learners. Our people are your people. And we learn from you as you learn from us. We’re fortunate to have a group of people who share a common vision for what education can be. And what people can achieve. We’re all passionate about education and many of us come from education backgrounds. Every day we’re coming up with new ideas to change education – and the world – as we know it. PRODUCTS. We focus on creating technology to help students learn, not just one way, but their own way. Our unrivaled products and unparalleled services have stood the test of time and come out ahead. With our solutions-centric and flexible approach, customers realize a vision tailored to their unique needs.
