Students and learners sometimes have a need for non-degree or non-credit courses. Likewise, institutions may have a need to deliver non-credit sessions or activities such as orientations, community enrichment, organization, life skills training, etc. Sessions like these are difficult to facilitate through a traditional SIS. Blackboard T&DM can exist alongside a Learn institution’s SIS to streamline these types of activities and enhance the use of Learn.

Training and Development Manager is a new SaaS product that allow institutions to set-up a course catalog, registration with an optional payment gateway, and provide certifications for courses without a need for integration with other systems (like the SIS). It is currently available only for Learn users, regardless of hosting deployment (SaaS, MH, SH).
