Narrowly escaping a complete federal government shutdown a few weeks ago has led many leaders in government to question their own preparedness for the situation. A shutdown could have meant major delays for government-backed initiatives, which would have paralyzed day-to-day functions, programs administration, and training efforts. So how can governments maintain continuity during unexpected workplace stagnation?
Today, there are a plethora of online technologies that enable governments to provide workers access to their files and email remotely. These types of tools keep operations running regardless of the status of the federal government. Blackboard wants to be part of the solution in times of uncertainty. That is why we have developed an online continuous learning system that provides relief to anyone with an Internet connection. Whether it is before, during, or after the learning event – the Blackboard Learn solution provides the means to enrich and extend the learning experience—beyond the classroom.
Now, more than ever, it is vital to have plans in place for employees to work or continue to build skills remotely – regardless of inclement weather or a government shut down. Blackboard helps you prepare ahead of time so that workers and learners can seamlessly transition from the office to their home computer.
