*Important notes about these offers:
We loved ANGEL and it was hard to let go, but we partnered well with Blackboard during the transition and our Fall launch was very successful!
The support that Release 9.1 is offering now is above and beyond what was previously offered, like the On Demand Learning Center and the videos, tutorials.
We were thrilled with the On-Demand Learning site. Having a site where videos are automatically updated, and allowing us to link to that content—it’s just an amazing benefit for us.
