Mark Priddle
National Manager of the Institute
Primary Healthcare

"As health care professionals have very little time, it is important to have a good learning system that allows them to go at their own pace. Blackboard has helped us bring people together from over 70 sites across Australia. This has allowed education ideas to be shared and people to form new relationships."


Compliance and certification

Just ticking the boxes? That could cost your organisation its reputation — and your employees their jobs.

Today, compliance and certification training is an essential part of learning — and for good reason.

If compliance and certification is important to your organisation’s business, training and HR strategy, you can’t afford to invest in a learning solution that is less than engaging, challenging, and enjoyable — and ultimately certifiable — for your employees.

Blackboard for Business creates solutions that really educate your staff. Make the shift from compliance training (‘just tick the box and pass’) to compliance learning (‘I understand and can apply this’).

Leadership development

Ready to lose your Top 20% talent? Without a Leadership Development training program, you run just that risk.

Blackboard for Business to the rescue. With our engaging learning & development solutions, we’ve helped companies like Allstate and Bayer retain and grow their top talent. Successful companies invest in their employees’ leadership development - and are rewarded with more revenue, better market performance, and higher levels of innovation.

Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Industry

Staff development across your entire organisation: it’s what you need in the fast-moving, highly innovative Healthcare and Pharmaceutical industry. Enabled by technology, the entire model of healthcare and pharma is shifting to provide more service orientation, and life-changing new medicines, to the patients who need them most.

Get them on the same page without having to get on a plane: no need to travel for trainings when Blackboard for Business is available 24/7, anywhere in the world.

— Michael Capaldi, Associate Vice President, sales training and management development, Sanofi-Aventis
