Pick of the week

At Anthology together, the company introduced Anthology Intelligent Experiences (iX). This is the company’s vision for a connected ecosystem of products and services that use data to power meaningful interactions both in and outside the classroom.

JD White, Chief Product Officer at Anthology, commented: “Picture a world where students receive skill-based career readiness maps based on course performance and involvement in activities outside the classroom, allowing them to adapt their education journey to reach a desired outcome while helping advisors scale their support to guide the learner’s path. That’s an Intelligent Experience, and we can make it a reality within the Anthology portfolio.”

Anthology also revealed that more than 200 higher education institutions, K-12 school districts, and business and government organizations had deepened their partnerships with Anthology since the company merged with Blackboard last October. Jim Milton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Anthology, commented: “Just nine months after the merger, we’ve already seen the impact that our combined solutions can have not only on the full learner lifecycle, but also on the day-to-day lives of faculty and staff,”

Anthology also saw increased momentum of Blackboard Learn Ultra following the acquisition. It has seen a 46% increase in the number of courses designed using Blackboard Learn Ultra and a 30% increase in the number of institutions deploying Learn Ultra courses year over year.

JD White, Chief Product Officer at Anthology, commented: “Anthology’s Blackboard Learn Ultra is so much more than an LMS. When integrated with other core systems on campus, it becomes an essential tool in delivering the insights that institutions need to create more personalized experiences for students, and it will play a critical role in our Anthology iX product vision.

“We’ve tripled the size of our Learn development team in the last year and are working with universities in more than 70 countries to help them realize its full capabilities. This is just the beginning of what we expect to see ahead.”
