Acuity Insights announces integration with Anthology’s Learning Management System for its Analytics product

Analytics now aggregates data from Blackboard Learn, as well as other systems, to provide higher education institutions with holistic insights for student and program success.

TORONTO, July 11, 2023 – Acuity Insights announces that its Analytics product now integrates with Anthology’s Blackboard Learn, one of the most widely-used learning management systems (LMS) in higher education. This new integration allows programs to access Blackboard grades directly within the Analytics platform, alongside learner data from other sources, providing a complete picture of learner and program performance. Through Analytics, higher education programs using Blackboard will be able to take their data to the next level. Blackboard users will now be able to see and analyze their grades data alongside data that Analytics provides from other systems, all in one place, including:

  • in-course exams
  • gateway exams
  • matriculation data
  • course evaluation
  • residency match data

What is Analytics?

Analytics by Acuity Insights brings complex data together from multiple systems in higher education institutions and delivers it through insightful dashboards that enable programs to make decisions with confidence. Analytics empowers programs to:

  • enhance program outcomes
  • optimize student learning and potential
  • cultivate a culture of continuous improvement

With this latest integration, Analytics delivers program–wide insights in real-time by integrating data from the learner and program management solutions that higher education relies on every day, including:

  • Blackboard Learn
  • Canvas
  • One45
  • ExamSoft
  • NBME (National Board of Medical Examiners)

CEO of Acuity Insights Rich Emrich says: “Leaders and decision makers in higher education often struggle with getting the critical insights they need across the learner lifecycle to ensure student and program success, thanks to unconnected data that comes from myriad, disparate systems. Our vision with Analytics is to provide them with a single, easy-to-use source of insights so they can devise holistic strategies for success. The integration with Blackboard Learn is one of many steps we are taking to provide a unified data and insights platform for higher education leaders.”
