Edline has been a part of the Blackboard K-12 family since October, and we’re thrilled to finally have our very own OFFICIAL Blackboard name—Blackboard Engage! With a new name for our organization comes a new opportunity to grow with Blackboard AND with your school’s evolving needs. It’s the same products you know and love with a new division name that better defines what we are passionate about—parental and student engagement. Blackboard Engage will continue to serve the K-12 community through its flagship Edline product along with SchoolWorld, SchoolFusion, SchoolCenter GradeQuick, Easy Grade Pro and Teacher Web with an increased focus on driving product enhancements and high-touch client care. Since the coming together of Edline and Blackboard, our position in the K-12 market has been solidified, now with more clients in K-12 than in higher education! With access to so many great Blackboard products and tools, we hope to bring our current clients more opportunities to engage and interact with their users, as well as spread the Blackboard Engage love to all the folks who have already discovered Blackboard K-12. Get ready to engage your entire learning community with the NEW Blackboard Engage.

    When will this happen?  We are preparing documents right now for next school year and I need to know when to change our terminology!  Thanks.

    • Megan Peddycord

      Hi Karen, great question! The company name change will be complete
      by the end of the June, but your Edline product name will remain the same.
      We’re happy to supply whatever you need to update your documents, and how much
      updating you’ll need to do will depend on the kind of documentation and how
      long it needs to last. Feel free to email me at megan.peddycord@blackboard.com for more information or questions.

    I wonder whether the restrictions on picture sizes will be lifted along with an increase in capacity to post audiovisual files. This has been a clean weakness from edline’s end.

    Will students need to search “Blackboard Engage” to find the login page?

  • Jaworskic

    I am confused.  Are we to use the name EDLINE within our schools or the new name BLACKBOARD ENGAGED?  If Balckboard Engaged, what will the webaddress be for people wanting to access it?

    • Jenna

       I’m also wondering the same thing.  Furthermore, will the promotional materials we distribute to parents along with their activation codes still say “Edline” since you said the Edline product name remains the same?

    • Megan Peddycord

      Thanks for your question!  Your Edline product and school web address will remain the same, and everything will continue to function and be accessible in the same manner as the previous school year. As far as your users are concerned, they will  have the same Edline product they have always had. Blackboard Engage is the new name of the company that will be supporting your Edline products.

      I hope this helps!

    What about the interface with Reideker and Admin Plus?

    • Megan Peddycord

      Hi Jill. Everything will remain the same with our relationship with Reideker, including functionality.

    This phrase kills me… “While there are no changes to the products you use,”Come on guys.  We have been waiting for Blackboard functionality for a year now…

    Will teachers still be allowed to buy Easy Grade Pro as a standalone product, and upload their marks to their own server if desired? I was never a fan of the Edline environment, and I’m even less interested in Blackboard. Moreover, my district has no money or interest in learning management systems (for which I’m thankful). I’m really worried this is the beginning of the end of Easy Grade Pro as a separate product, and as a tool of leading edge, independent teachers. 

    • Megan Peddycord

      Thanks for your question! Easy Grade Pro single user
      licenses will continue to be sold—there are no planned changes there.

  • Rfreer

    Will the planned “fix” so I can use current Apple software such as Lion with my edline grade book work now that you are part of Blackboard?  As of last year, I could only enter grades.  I was promised that the entire grade book would work by the beginning of this school year.

    was at a school with School-loop which was I liked WAY better because when I created an assignment in the grade-book, it automatically went to those students calendars, ALSO default homepage for all was calendar with everything on it for the week! WAAAAAAAY better. Copy them.
