Federal, state, local and tribal government entities will now have fast and cost-effective means to procure secure and reliable cloud-based Blackboard solutions in AWS GovCloud.

HERNDON, Va. (August 27, 2018) - DLT Solutions, an award-winning, public sector technology leader, today announced that it has added Blackboard’s leading learning management system to its GSA IT Schedule 70 (GS-35F-267DA) Cloud SIN. DLT GSA Cloud SIN provides government agencies with centralized, streamlined access to cloud computing services through IT Schedule 70 to meet their needs.

Now, federal, state, local and tribal government entities have fast and cost-effective means to procure secure and reliable cloud-based Blackboard solutions in AWS GovCloud, enabling them to reach millions of learners worldwide with secure, on-demand, and instructor-led online training. With Blackboard products now included on Cloud SIN, customers can clearly distinguish cloud services from non-cloud IT products and services in order to find the right solution quickly.

With Blackboard’s solutions, DLT is helping 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. DLT provides 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 pleased to be added to DLT’s GSA Cloud SIN, making it even easier for government agencies to gain access to our leading training and learning solutions," said Bryna Dash, Vice President, Government at Blackboard. "We look forward to continuing to working with DLT to empower public sector organizations with the tools they need to deliver on critical mission objectives."
