The Blackboard team had a fantastic time at SXSWedu 2014, sharing in the high-energy atmosphere of innovation, collaboration and passion for overcoming barriers to student success. We joined our new Austin-based MyEdu colleagues in making a conscious effort to speak less and listen more. We especially enjoyed watching so many of our customers present about how they are using technology to advance new learning models. Here are a few pictures from the show:
