Umm Al-Qura University Chooses Blackboard to Replace D2L

Blackboard, a education technology company for teaching, learning and student engagement, has announced that Umm Al-Qura University (UQU) has selected Blackboard´s learning management system, Blackboard Learn, to replace its legacy system, the company said.

Umm Al-Qura University is one of the largest public Islamic universities in Saudi Arabia, serving over 100,000 students across 35 colleges.

Blackboard Learn will help the university achieve Saudi Arabia´s “Vision 2030” and the National Transformation Program (NTP), which set out an ambitious roadmap for education reform. Some of the key benefits of Learn include a connected experience across devices, ease of content creation and management and a range of digital assessment and social learning tools.

The university is also leveraging Blackboard Collaborate, a simple and reliable online collaborative learning environment, SafeAssign, an originality-checker, and on-the-go access to coursework and other educational information through Blackboard´s mobile solutions.

Our mission is to partner with the global education community to enable learner and institutional success, leveraging innovative technologies and services. With an unmatched understanding of the world of the learner, the most comprehensive student-success solutions, and the greatest capacity for innovation, Blackboard is education´s partner in change.
