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 Toronto, Canada! 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 May!
Hundreds of partners — from content, media and technology companies to system integrators and more - help Blackboard clients around the globe build a better education experience. Through the Blackboard Partnerships™ programwe work together to reach, engage, and assess more learners.

Select partners are invited to participate in the Never Stop Learning Tour events so that you can learn how to extend your Blackboard platform to deliver a richer, more engaging educational experience for your learners. Select the Partner tab on each event page to see which partners will be represented.
