K-12 education is amidst unprecedented times. This time of unprecedented change is creating challenges and opportunities for taking K-12 education to the next level.
Blackboard wants to empower schools to overcome these challenges and transform learning. We took a long hard look at what was working and what wasn’t in K-12, and developed a solution uniquely designed to address the challenges faced by K-12 educators each day. That’s why we created Blackboard Classroom.
Blackboard Classroom is much more than a learning management system. Blackboard Classroom is a comprehensive digital learning environment built specifically to address the unique needs of K-12 education.
We launched Blackboard Classroom internally with our teams in January of 2017. In May 2017, we launched Blackboard Classroom externally.
We are honored to be recognized for excellence by two esteemed industry organizations in our first year: Tech & Learning and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA). Just a month after our public launch, SIIA named Blackboard Classroom a 2017 CODiE Awards Educational Technology Finalist. And just last week, Tech & Learning named Blackboard Classroom a 2017 Awards of Excellence Winner. Each year for the past 35 years, Tech & Learning selects the best of the best products in its prestigious Awards of Excellence program and after a panel of Tech & Learning advisors tested hundreds of entries, they selected Blackboard Classroom as a 2017 winner.
