Even though online learning programs are relatively new for many institutions of higher education, Berkeley College has been proudly offering online courses since 1998. Today, Berkeley Online features over 270 courses and 28 degree programs, which complement the College’s eight on-site locations in New York and New Jersey. Blackboard began supporting this innovative school nearly a decade ago, and our role in facilitating administrative ease and student engagement continues today.
Blackboard’s partnership with Berkeley College has grown and evolved in a way that reflects the school’s commitment to frequent, open communication. The school currently leverages Blackboard Learn 9.1 to create a centralized information portal, allowing students the ability to easily view grades, transcript requests, and tuition information online. The Learn 9.1 platform even provides outlets for course enrollment, tutoring, and professional development for professors- all from one easy-to-navigate, online portal.
One of the most recent developments in our partnership with Berkeley College has been the school’s implementation of Blackboard Mobile Learn. This powerful online tool allows student and faculty alike to access course content and information on a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablet PCs. As a result, students are able to access crucial course information anytime, anywhere within the fast-paced and highly connected world in which they live. Beyond providing a stable learning platform and mobile learning capabilities, here are some other benefits Blackboard brings to Berkeley College:
- Comprehensive Connectivity: Communication-rich features engage students throughout their educational experience- from registration through coursework assessment.
- Exceptional Stability: Berkeley College is one of more than 1,500 institutions that have adopted the Blackboard Learn 9.1 platform because of its stability and enhanced functionality.
- Valuable Partnership: The responsiveness of the Blackboard team has been critical to maintaining Berkeley’s operations, and the long-term partnership has helped the school fulfill the promise of online education.
