Qwickly is announcing a solution that connects the world’s largest learning management system, Blackboard Learn, and Microsoft’s Office 365, one of the most deployed productivity solutions in education today.
Blackboard Inc. announced that teachers and learners in K-12 schools will now be able to easily integrate content from third-party cloud repositories into their Blackboard courses using Qwickly.
One of the biggest draws for Qwickly is that it's available for free for Blackboard clients in the K-12 realm. Being able to produce content in the cloud and share it out with students gives instructors the ability to more quickly post assignments from anywhere in the world.
"What really separates Qwickly from other products is their excellent and fast customer support and their super friendly customer support. It isn't very often you find a co-founder like still working vendor booths and walking around talking with the old gang."
Qwickly is a productivity platform that makes it simple for teachers to bring in content from their cloud and share across their courses. The Qwickly Building Block is now available at no additional cost to our K-12 Blackboard Learn 9.1 customers.
Qwickly Inc. has launched a new engine that allows Blackboard Learn™ users to upload documents to their preferred cloud storage solution while linking that file to users within Blackboard Learn™.

"Qwickly is a Blackboard plugin that makes life much easier for instructors... [and] allows instructors to perform actions across courses that in the past had to be performed separately. Less clicks. No repetition. Now that's sweet."
