University of the Visayas Selects Anthology’s Learning Management System, Blackboard

Anthology, the leading provider of education solutions that support the entire learner lifecycle, today announced the University of the Visayas, a province-wide system of higher education in the Philippines, has selected Blackboard Learn Ultra as its new learning management system (LMS). Known for innovative student programs, the University of the Visayas aims to instill a culture of excellence in students through academic training and lifelong learning, enhancing their leadership potential and career success. To support this mission, the University of Visayas needed an intuitive learning management system and a partner that could help them with their digital transformation journey.  

The University of the Visayas conducted a thorough competitive review, including a pilot subscription from another vendor as a potential replacement for their current system. However, they concluded the piloted product was not as user-friendly as anticipated and lacked the local support they needed.

They expanded their competitive review to include Blackboard by Anthology. Thirty department heads from the University of Visayas attended a Blackboard Learn workshop, where they got first-hand experience using its industry-leading features like the AI Design Assistant.

“The feedback from the attending department heads was resounding,” said University President Dr. Conrado E. Iñigo, Jr.

“They touted Blackboard’s ease of use, intuitiveness and logical, flexible workflow; they felt very comfortable with the AI functionality in Blackboard,” Dr. Iñigo added.

The University selected Blackboard as their new LMS and it will replace their current platform.

The academic institution will also implement Anthology’s digital content accessibility solution (Ally) with Blackboard Learn, supporting their commitment to accessibility and creating an inclusive environment for everyone. Ally provides digital course content in multiple formats and languages, a feature that is imperative to delivering an inclusive student experience.

“We are thrilled to partner with the University of the Visayas, a renowned institution dedicated to excellence and career success,” said Joe Belenardo, Chief Revenue Officer at Anthology. “Our regional presence will enable us to closely collaborate and support their mission of supporting community development and the socioeconomic needs of the country through their educational programs.”
