Focusing on continuous improvement, the university can generate a variety of customizable and detailed reports at any level including institution-wide, or by faculty, department, or instructor to drive teaching and learning priorities.
A key factor for UNLV was Blue’s ability to easily integrate with it current (PeopleSoft, Blackboard Learn) and future systems (Canvas). Through deep SIS and LMS integration, the university will be able to automate workflows, increase accessibility and engagement, and leverage new and historical data to align to reporting and accreditation needs.
