Custom Developments

We develop custom software extensions and solutions for Blackboard, Panopto and other Digital Education systems to improve functionality and streamline administrative processes.   


Custom reports are available for departments on the use of Blackboard, Panopto or any of the tools we support. Although most systems offer standardised report generation, custom reports can deliver specific insights into students’ use of e-learning systems beyond those available by default.
