Students at today’s professional colleges and universities bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom. Because many of these students balance full-time careers or family life alongside their education, they have unique needs that must be met in order for them to reach academic and professional success. Blackboard Learn™ for Career Colleges is aimed at addressing these needs in a way that is engaging and at pace with the busy lifestyles of adult learners. We recently developed four videos that highlight some of the key ways Blackboard Learn enables these adult learners to reach their highest potential:
- Engage students: By leveraging web 2.0 technologies, Blackboard Learn creates streamlined learning portals for easy and intuitive navigation to course information, while also providing the opportunity to connect with other students for social learning experiences.
- Provide openness and choice: Blackboard Learn allows for a tailored learning platform that easily integrates with your institution’s partners, including publishers and other content providers. This allows course developers to create engaging educational content in an environment that is secure, flexible, and open.
- Demonstrate successful outcomes: It is more important than ever that professional colleges and universities provide robust and accurate measures of student success. Blackboard Learn can aid in that effort, as it provides efficient and accurate tools for measuring student achievement, including detailed rubrics and other data-driven assessments.
- Drive student success: Blackboard Learn gives instructors the ability to drive student success through consistent and timely feedback. Built-in tools help instructors identify at-risk students so they can receive individualized attention, helping students overcome challenges and stay motivated to succeed.
