Tools4ever, the market leader in Identity and Access Management (IdM/IAM) solutions, announced a new collaboration tool for Blackboard Learn™, Blackboard Inc.’s market-leading learning management system (LMS).

Blackboard Learn is the cornerstone of Blackboard’s teaching and learning solutions that help districts drive change from student-centric innovations in the classroom to more effective professional development.Tools4ever offers a connection from their User Management Resource Administrator (UMRA) solution to Blackboard Learn. This connection allows school districts to automate and streamline their identity management, which reduces the time and resources the IT department spends dealing with account management issues. Specifically, system administrators can automate the creation, movement, and the de-provisioning of employee and student accounts, so that no manual action needs to be taken.

The UMRA - Blackboard Building Block allows school districts to eliminate manual inputs of data from their Student Information System (SIS) into their Active Directory and will instead automatically manage the lifecycle of the user accounts across the enterprise within AD and Blackboard Learn. The connector currently allows for the complete lifecycle management of user accounts and roles within Blackboard Learn and will be extended to include classroom schedules if clients request the functionality.

In reference to the new partnership, Dean Wiech, Managing Director at Tools4ever stated, “Our integration with Blackboard Learn will allow us to combine our resources to provide a superior solution for our customers. We look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership for many years to come.”
