Hybrid secondary education pioneer and one of the largest providers of online education in North America, the University of Phoenix has chosen to leverage the Blackboard ecosystem to “enable a next-generation digital learning platform” for its estimated 140,000 students. A 2022 partnership extension announcement is available at

The workplace-designed University already offers a virtual learning environment based on Blackboard’s systems Learn (LMS and Moodle competitor), Ally (accessibility solution), Collaborate (learning designer with live collaboration tools) and SafeAssign (for plagiarism and academic integrity). By 2019, the plan is to move the complete solution to Blackboard’s cloud in the company’s SaaS (Software as a Service) Blackboard Ultra.

The solution and migration process is another example of how the University of Phoenix is a pioneer in meeting educational demands at “academic, professional and personal” levels. The University serves a growing market of “certificates, test preparation and individual courses” for working professionals. In addition to Blackboard, students enjoy a comprehensive technological environment including an ebook library, a virtual lab and simulation center, writing tools, coaching and career support, a social network, and mobile apps.

First-generation graduates make up 60% of their student body, considered the second largest in the United States. More than 140,000 students were enrolled in 2016, from a reported peak of 600,000. Since 2017, it is owned by private equity firm Apollo Global Management.
