Registration for the next free PCG Academia webinar has opened! The online meeting entitled Advantages of the cloud model in remote education at the university – case study of the implementation of Blackboard Learn Ultra at the University of Social Sciences in Łódź will take place on September 29, 2020.
In the webinar, we will take a closer look at the Blackboard Learn Ultra, which is one of the best and most popular e-learning platforms in the world – it is used by universities of all types and sizes in various countries.
The platform’s features such as scalability, flexibility, user-friendliness, and security in particular contributed to the popularity of Blackboard Learn Ultra. Moreover, an additional advantage of the platform is the possibility of full operation in the cloud operated by Amazon Web Services, which guarantees stability and high quality of the connection.
Due to the fact that the Blackboard Learn Ultra e-learning platform can operate as a cloud-based service, the university can enjoy the acquired solution within just a few weeks from signing the contract.
To show that it is really possible, we will present a case study of one of the Polish universities. The University of Social Sciences in Łódź is the first university in Poland that decided to launch the Blackboard Learn Ultra platform as a cloud service.
Since we would like you to get to know the authentic implementation process and the real experience of using the Blackboard platform, we invited two practitioners:
- Dr Paweł Morawski, implementation leader on behalf of the University of Social Sciences, e-learning manager at the University of Social Sciences, Blackboard Brand Ambassador in Poland and university lecturer providing remote education;
- Mr Tomasz Olejnik, Head of CEE Public Sector at Amazon Web Services, responsible for the public sector in Central and Eastern Europe; has been developing cloud technologies for years.
The webinar will be hosted by Magda Sochacka, Director for Channel Partnerships at PCG Academia, responsible for the alliance of PCG Academia and Blackboard in Poland.
During the webinar, the host and speakers will show the Blackboard Learn Ultra functionalities and the benefits of implementing the platform in the SaaS (Software as a Service) model, as well as dispel doubts arising in regard to cloud services.
Are you wondering whether cloud solutions are good for your university? Are you curious about the costs of such solutions and the possibility of financing them from EU funds? Are you worried about the compliance of these solutions with the GDPR? If yes, then this webinar is for you! We will try to answer all these and other questions.
The webinar will be held on September 29, 2020 from 1 pm to 2 pm. Participation in the event is free of charge, just fill out the registration form on our website: pcgacademia.pl. We are waiting for your registrations!
