Last week I participated in the Blackboard Teaching & Learning Conference Asia (TLC Asia) in Singapore with over 130 participants. It was an honor to meet with and get feedback and insights from clients across the region - Malaysia, Singapore, India, Philippines, China, Thailand, Australia, Vietnam, and Hong Kong. I also had the pleasure of traveling out to visit our Singapore clients including Polymall and Institute of Technical Education at their campuses.
At the conference, we highlighted the significant momentum within the client community to migrate to SaaS, and focused many of our discussions and sessions on the change management of Ultra which is now being used in production by over 90 clients.
I also had the pleasure of presenting the Catalyst Awards. I would like to congratulate the teams from University of Santo Tomas, Malayan Colleges Mindanao, University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, INTI International University and Colleges, and Temasek Polytechnic for their innovative uses of Blackboard technology.
Throughout the conference, we highlighted the Community Site and the Community programs which provide tremendous value through the sharing of insights, best practices and lessons learned across the 13,000+ members of the Blackboard Community. We had 30 new members join the Community site at the conference – welcome to the Community!
