SCOCA's Blackboard Consortium
SCOCA leads a Blackboard Learning Management Consortium that currently has 37 member school districts. In addition to hosting the services on our servers, we provide technical support and curricular training for consortium members.

New Tools for Learning Inside Blackboard!
Thanks to the STEMM Hub grant, we have licensed StudyMate class for the Blackboard Consortium. This feature inside Blackboard allows teachers to add basic content that is in turn, turned into learning activities, self assessments and games to help students grasp the content in a fun and engaging manner. The activities include crossword puzzles, quizzes, challenge games (Jeopardy Style) for 1 or 2 players and more. There is also an app for mobile devices that wil lmake studying for tests and quizzes a breeze for you students. Check out these resources:
