At Blackboard, our vision is “Everyone Educated.” We know providing access to
educational resources opens doors for societies influencing innovation,
entrepreneurship and tomorrow’s leaders. A powerful example of this is the
partnership, led by former Columbian President Álvaro Uribe, between Blackboard
and Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA), the national learning service of
Columbia, to bring online education to all Columbian citizens.
The video was created to showcase how Blackboard Learn™ and Blackboard Managed
Hosting were not only able to support 33 million Columbian students, but also
how the two organizations contributed to the Columbian workforce development
initiative and helped change the future of the country.
