I love the BbWorld Conference. It’s making a huge difference. I attended the Q&A session with Blackboard Leadership and it gave a lot of hope for the future of digital teaching and learning. I gained so much confidence in the company and the vision Blackboard has in using technology to drive student success.

This year’s conference was excellent. The discussion on SaaS renewed my faith in considering a move for our school. Good sessions and the Blackboard teams were even more accessible to users which was great!

I spent quite a bit of time at the Knowledge Bar and with folks in the Blackboard booth, and that time was very well spent! I learned a lot to address the specific questions I had.
