Blackboard Launches Blackboard Analytics, a New Solution for Data Analytics in Education

WASHINGTON Feb. 8, 2011

Blackboard Analytics

In contrast to typical data warehousing projects which can be expensive, time consuming and risky, Blackboard Analytics can be implemented in a matter of weeks to help institutions quickly and cost-effectively turn complex data into actionable information. As a result, leaders can better understand and improve performance in areas including student enrollment and retention, financial aid, institutional financial performance and fundraising and human resources.

The new platform is available to all institutions regardless of whether they already work with Blackboard. The effort, which builds upon work that the Company had already begun in education analytics, was strengthened by the acquisition of new technology and a development team from iStrategy, LLC.

A growing number of clients already rely on the platform to improve student recruiting, retention and completion, optimize class schedules and faculty resources and grow new programs.
