At Blackboard, we started out with a unique idea—if we are not learning something new every day, we are not moving forward. Our goal is to make learning more desirable, accessible, and meaningful for learners. Founded in 1997 by two Georgetown University graduates and former KPMG consultants, Blackboard was one of the first companies to set the stage in online learning solutions. In 19 years Blackboard has grown to serve over 19,000 higher education institutions, government organizations and corporations in 115 countries, including Benin, Botswana, Ghana, Namibia, Nigeria, Kenya, Senegal, and South Africa.
- Of the Top 50 Times Higher Education Reputation Ranking in 2014, 80% of the world’s top academic institutions work with us.
- Our solutions and services are used by over 20 million K-12 students.
- We support and work with 92% of the top online bachelor degree programs.
As a result of working with the thousands of universities around the world, we’ve built the best technologies and solutions to help address some of their biggest challenges and advance education in meaningful ways.
