New online remedial solution planned

With an estimated 60 percent of all first year community college students needing at least one remedial course, the cost of re-learning basic skills is a growing problem for students, their families and institutions of higher education. To help address the issue, Blackboard Inc. and K12 Inc. today announced plans to develop a solution that delivers K12’s adaptive courses through Blackboard Learn™ online teaching and learning platform.

Blackboard and K12 will jointly develop the solution, which will be made available in 2011 to any higher education institution.
