Digital learning content is a hot topic – both across the education landscape and especially here at Blackboard. With the growing importance of online learning, course designers and instructors are constantly evolving the elements they incorporate into their digital curriculum. Every educator has their own style, their own methods, and their own set of students with unique needs. And with so many options out there, deciding what content to choose can be overwhelming. For more than six years SoftChalk, a leading provider of content authoring software for educators in K-12, higher ed and medical programs, has partnered with Blackboard to offer a tool for publishing user-generated lessons to Blackboard Learn. It’s been a fabulous run, and 2012 has been no exception. Recently SoftChalk and the Kentucky Community & Technical College System (KCTCS) were chosen as a bronze Learning Impact Award winner by the IMS Global Learning Consortium for the revolutionary Learn on Demand program offered through KCTCS Online. SoftChalk also announced the winners of its 2012 Lesson Challenge – with winning lessons submitted by instructors covering a wide range of subjects, including Spelling, Integers & Real Numbers, First Aid, Nonverbal Messages, and Public Health. But what’s most exciting about SoftChalk this year is their announcement yesterday that their product is officially available in the Cloud. That means SoftChalk users can create original, media-rich, engaging lessons that can be published anywhere, anytime – with or without an LMS. SoftChalk content is reusable, sharable and completely customizable. And what do customers claim is the best part about SoftChalk? It’s easy to learn and convenient to use! So if you’ve ever asked: How do I create personalized content that addresses the diverse learning needs of students? How can I reliably track detailed student score results for my learning content? How can I create content for mobile learners quickly and easily? SoftChalk could be your answer. Join the Blackboard Partnerships team for a free webinar on June 20 and see why.
