Blackboard is a leading provider of enterprise software applications and related services for learning and development. The Blackboard Learn™ platform is implemented by organizations looking for cost-effective ways to deliver training with real impact. This next generation online teaching and learning platform seamlessly embeds the concepts of informal learning, such as blogs, wikis, and other content-sharing space. Watson Pharmaceuticals found tremendous success by using the platform as a continuous learning environment during three new product launches. Watson’s training department created an online learning environment packed with sales courses, sample sale presentations and tutorials that became an around-the-clock virtual classroom. Not only did the department gain visibility throughout the organization with the implementation of Blackboard Learn, but there was a huge shift in employee behavior, not to mention a substantial cost and time savings and a boost in sales.
