Blackboard Open LMS is committed to providing its clients with everything they need. As an open-source SaaS provider, we have the opportunity to enhance our Blackboard Open LMS platform through modular code updates and third-party plugin integrations. We are committed to ensuring the security, stability, and performance of our Blackboard Open LMS platform for all clients. That’s why we want you on the Blackboard Open LMS MAP.

What is the Blackboard Open LMS Approved Plugin (MAP) Program?

The MAP Program is managed by our Client Development team to oversee plugins added to the Blackboard Open LMS codebase from our community or vendor partners. To join the MAP program and add a plugin to the Blackboard Open LMS codebase requires a Statement of Work (SOW) for a Code Review, plus Annual Support and Maintenance to continue in the program. Once added, clients can request to enable any approved plugin listed on our Blackboard Open LMS Plugin Matrix.
