There has been a lot going on at Blackboard in the past few months around our Moodle solutions. This is why I am excited to announce that we have acquired Nivel Siete, a leading provider of open source solutions and one of the most well respected Moodle partners in Latin America.
Nivel Siete offers a variety of learning solutions, hosting, support and consulting services that help organizations succeed in their teaching and learning initiatives, including academic institutions and corporations that focus on the use of e-learning for talent management and training.
By joining forces, we will be able to support more learners who use Moodle to achieve their educational goals and attain academic success. Furthermore, we will expand and strengthen our open source customer network, creating new ways for institutions and organization to learn and collaborate with each other.
Today’s news further testifies to our commitment in Moodle and follows the recent acquisitions of Remote-Learner UK and X-Ray Analytics technology. It also reiterates the strategic importance of open source for our customers and for us.
Later in August, Nivel Siete we will be hosting a MoodleMoot in Colombia. All of our open source customers are invited to participate. It will be a great opportunity to connect with our local teams and learn more about this exciting story.
More to come in the upcoming months. Stay tuned!
