- Blackboard has said that it would buy MyEdu in what the company called a "small" acquisition.
- MyEdu, which has about 20 employees, helps students showcase skills to potential employers and recently added an option for employers to list jobs and internships.
- Blackboard says it will integrate the platform into its main site.
Blackboard's interest in MyEdu may have to do with a hot education topic: competency-based education. Blackboard's CEO told the Chronicle of Higher Education that MyEdu ties into competency-based education because students can share entire projects and show off specific skills rather than just listing a major.
