Bb World Roundup: Videos of presentations, keynotes, and more

Note from Blackboard CIO and President Jay Bhatt

On behalf of the entire Blackboard team, thank you for joining us at BbWorld 2014 in Vegas! We were thrilled to host you and offer a rich week filled with discussions about the future of education and how we are your partner in getting there.

Your contributions are what made BbWorld a success. Not only were the vast majority of sessions driven by educational leaders and administrators just like you, but your feedback, point of view, and insight was invaluable. It is what drives us to innovate and deliver solutions that help you create the best educational experience for your learners.

BbWorld really represents a collection of viewpoints and ideas. We are fully committed to making sure you have access to the discussions and exchanges from the event through a robust set of resources that you can leverage in your day-to-day work and easily share with colleagues to continue the conversations. Highlights of these include:

I hope these will be useful to you. Follow us at @Blackboard as we continue to make announcements that provide more value to you and your learners. Find me at @JayBhattTweets and keep me posted on how you think we are doing. And don’t forget to start thinking about BbWorld 2015 July 21-23 in Washington, D.C.
