Blackboard will continue to support Blackboard Learn – ANGEL Edition

Blackboard, Inc. had intended to stop supporting its Blackboard Learn— ANGEL Edition learning management system in October, 2014. It was intending to promote the migration to Blackboard Learn 9.1 instead. But based upon customer feedback, the company decided to not only keep supporting ANGEL, but to continue to improve the system.

Ray Henderson, Chief Technology Officer and President of Academic Platforms at Blackboard, told Yahoo! Finance that the company wanted to allow clients to continue to use ANGEL for a longer period of time, allowing clients more time to make the transition.

"We recognize that clients continue to be successful with ANGEL and we want to support that work as part of our larger strategy to support multiple learning platforms," Henderson said.

Blackboard ANGEL 8.0 was released in September 11, containing some small improvements to its assessment navigation, discussion forums and gradebook. It also allows users to batch export content and is certified for Safari and Chrome browsers. The company also released a mobile version of ANGEL in late 2011.
