Partnership empowers public sector organizations with Blackboard’s leading training and learning tools to educate agency professionals

HERNDON, Va. (Sept. 12, 2017) - DLT Solutions, an award-winning, public sector technology leader, today announced a new partnership with Blackboard Inc. to provide end-to-end online learning, virtual training, and professional development solutions to federal, state and local government agencies. With Blackboard’s solutions, DLT will help enable agencies to modernize training and learning for government employees, allowing them to deliver on critical mission objectives.

As the leading provider of learner success-focused technology solutions and services, Blackboard helps government agencies and organizations provide today’s diverse employees with the flexible professional development, training, and online learning that they need to be successful. Blackboard’s online learning solutions include social learning tools, communities, virtual conferencing, mobile access, assessment and competency-based learning programs. Through this partnership, DLT will provide agencies with access to Blackboard’s Software-as-a-Service solutions and web-based portals, enabling federal customers to train and educate their government employees.

“We are seeing a great need for educational and training solutions in government today. With programs such as the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education now in place, it is important that government and industry work together to help educators deliver the proper educational and training tools to public sector employees,” said Brian Strosser, President at DLT. “With Blackboard, we are able to provide public sector organizations with the tools necessary to educate and train the next generation of agency professionals, and ultimately better compete with the private sector in IT modernization.”

“Blackboard is committed to helping our government clients meet their educational objectives, preserve institutional knowledge, and close skills gaps among their employees,” said Alex Kissal, Vice President of Blackboard Government Solutions. “We look forward to working with DLT to help even more government agencies provide today’s diverse employees with the flexible professional development, training, and online learning that they need to be successful.”
