Over the past year, there has been a lot of invigorating conversation about what “openness” means to learning technology. Opinions on the matter are wide-ranging, and here at Blackboard we are focusing now more than ever on creating a learning platform that is easily extended and powerfully interoperable with a wide range of external systems. Whether you are interested in connecting to Web 2.0 sites or authentication and enrollment systems, this year’s Blackboard Developers Conference again showcases the maturity and capability of the Blackboard Learn platform through examples from Blackboard’s client community.
Topics featured in this year’s sessions include open standards, developing mashups, virtualization, performance, CSS/themes, and advanced reporting. This program features 4 tracks, including a refined system administration & integration track, designed to meet the needs and expectations of a technical audience.
Highlighting Blackboard’s commitment to improved reporting and data transparency
System Administration & Integration
Designed for those who keep their learning systems up and running
Tips and effective practices for those who create user-facing functionality
Helping new developers get started – and the more advanced understand new capabilities
Also don’t forget about OSCELOT’s Open Source Day 5.0 happening on the Sunday before DevCon. OSD provides an excellent opportunity to meet and brainstorm with an active community of LMS plugin developers who have to-date created over 100 open source learning tools, many of which plug into Blackboard’s learning platforms.
We hope to see you this summer – just before BbWorld – in sunny Orlando!
