Blackboard upgrades Learn with student professional profiles
- Blackboard on Monday revealed a new student professional profile incorporated into its Blackboard Learn platform.
- The Enhanced Cloud Profile utilizes the company's recent acquisition of student jobs site MyEdu, as well as the student portfolio tool, allowing students to outline their achievements and find job and internship opportunities.
- Data shared on the profile can be controlled through strict privacy options, and it can also be linked to MyEdu profiles.
Utilizing the MyEdu acquisition to further bolster Blackboard's offerings is just the latest step the company has taken to improve its learning management system, Bb Learn. The tool is indicative of the overall evolution of the LMS over the last few years as these platforms move toward more comprehensive, all-in-one solutions focused on user experience.
