As benefits for investing your time in the MVP program, Blackboard offers MVPs premier access to Blackboard staff (i.e. executives, SMEs, Product Managers) and event perks. As experts, Blackboard will advocate for all MVPs to get published and promoted throughout Blackboard channels and platforms.


Each month, we bring in a new, high-level speaker to go over future product roadmaps, development, tips & tricks, and Q&A. These speakers are based on MVP’s feedback of who they want to hear from.


At events, such as BbWorld and TLC, the MVPs may have access to*:

  • Complimentary Tickets
