Blackboard is going on tour!

We’re traveling all across North America looking to meet you—the educators, technologists and leaders that share our passion for making the educational experience the best it can be.  The teams that design and build the tools you use everyday are jumping at the chance to meet and collaborate on what matters to you, where you are. 

The Never Stop Learning tour is also a unique opportunity to plug into your community and engage with fellow Blackboard users in your region. Transfer knowledge and come away with all the answers to your most pressing questions.

Our next stop is in Miami, Florida! We invite you to join us for this free, one-day event to: 

  • Connect with other Blackboard users in your area
  • Learn about the latest in features in Blackboard
  • Ask questions or share feedback with Blackboard product experts
Looking forward to seeing you and your colleagues in April!
Thank you to the following partners for their participation in the Never Stop Learning Tour event in Miami! For more information on their integrations with Blackboard, be sure to attend their sessions and stop by the Interaction Zone throughout the day.
