In 2015, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative published a widely cited white paper, "The Next Generation Digital Learning Environment: A Report on Research." This was not the first time the question of whether the LMS could keep up with the innovative practices in higher education. This model looked at foundational domains that higher education seeks to tailor for meeting their requirements and goals: interoperability, personalization, analytics, advising and learning assessment, collaboration, and accessibility and universal design. Blackboard is enhancing their LMS to become its own next-generation digital learning environment with integrations, personalization, analytics, and accessibility. While almost a quarter of institutions plan to replace their LMS in the next three years, Blackboard is gaining customers. A Blackboard representative will discuss new features being added to the LMS, while MUSC and CSU Representatives representative will discuss what this means for consumers. Learn what's on the horizon for Blackboard to become the next generation learning environment!
