Washington — Jan. 19
In an effort to establish a common platform to support the full spectrum of online learning, the State University of New York (SUNY) has selected Blackboard Inc. as its partner in online learning and its primary learning management system vendor, Blackboard announced on Thursday.
The agreement, part of a larger, system-wide effort at SUNY to control costs, offers special terms for up to six years for institutions that move to the latest version of Blackboard’s learning management system.
The deal will help ensure that SUNY colleges and universities have access to a common suite of products including the Blackboard Learn platform’s capabilities for content management to help manage and share digital content across the institution and community engagement to help study groups, student organizations, clubs and other kinds of groups interact more easily.
