The U.S. Army has chosen Blackboard to provide learning management systems for the military branch to educate approximately 350K service members as part of its Lifelong Learning Program.
Under a five-year partnership expansion, the service branch will implement Blackboard Learn, Blackboard Collaborate and mobile learning platforms to conduct training on premises or through cloud computing environments, the company said Tuesday.
Collaborate is designed to encourage real-time collaboration in a virtual classroom and Learn is built to help users create and manage training curriculum.
The company noted it will support more than 45 programs for the SGT Major's Academy at Fort Bliss and Army Management Staff College at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas.
Blackboard has helped educate Army civilians, Reservists and National Guard components with the use of collaborative learning platforms.
