We are excited to announce our plans for an improved learning management solution for corporations and other learning focused organizations that will emphasize training for sales teams. The announcement will be made today at Dreamforce 2010, the cloud computing event of the year.
To support the improved solution, Blackboard plans to develop a new application on Force.com, salesforce.com’s enterprise cloud computing platform that would add a range of administrative capabilities to its flagship learning platform, Blackboard Learn(TM). We believe this could truly become the killer app of sales training.
Already noted for its flexibility, ease of use and low cost of ownership, the Blackboard Learn platform would gain stronger certification, reporting and tracking abilities commonly associated with more complex and costly corporate learning management systems. As a result, customers would be able to more closely align employee learning and development programs with key corporate initiatives and priorities and ensure that they have a larger, more measureable impact on employee behavior, business goals and company performance.
I welcome your questions, comments, and ideas. Tweet us @BlackboardProEd, leave us a comment below, or stop by Booth 803 if you’re here at Dreamforce 2010.
