The partnership will bring Busuu’s personalized approach to improving language skills to students via Blackboard Assist, the tool within Blackboard Learn that connects students to services and support they might need to succeed. “Blackboard Assist is enabling institutions to increase access to student support and provide that access around-the-clock,” said Mary Gross, Senior Director of Partnerships at Blackboard. “With more than 100 million users, Busuu has proven its ability to help students bolster their spoken language, reading and vocabulary skills, and with 24/7 availability, students can access Busuu when and where they need it.” Busuu’s award-winning app combines courses created by experts with a global community for students to practice their language skills with native speakers. Its smart features include personalized study plans tailored to each learner’s unique goals, and AI-powered grammar and vocabulary review tools that target areas a student needs to strengthen.
