Access to Mobile Safety Technology Expanded

Blackboard and LiveSafe have partnered to expand schools' access to LiveSafe’s mobile safety technology, the companies announced today.

Blackboard provides integrated campus commerce and security solutions through Blackboard Transact™ to hundreds of higher education institutions. LiveSafe’s mobile technology allows for direct, two-way communication between safety officials and students that allows students to report safety concerns, receive emergency notifications and engage with an interactive safety map.

The LiveSafe app enables any student with a smartphone to share GPS-tagged video, photos, audio and text to a secure Web-based dashboard monitored by campus safety teams. The LiveSafe app can be downloaded on both Apple iOS® and Android™ smartphones.
