Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 8, 2006
Learn.com®, the global leader in creating and projecting power-on-demand, today announced that The Online College, based in Saskatoon Canada, has implemented the LearnCenter Learning and Performance Management Suite to be the foundation for the world’s first fully online career college.
“As a teacher and manager in the secondary and post-secondary system for 25-years, I have found that today’s brick and mortar schools are not meeting the needs of many students,” said Marie Kent, Principal at The Online College. “As attendance grows, classrooms become more and more crowded, and scheduling becomes less flexible. Our goal was to build the first online career college that meets the needs of each individual student while providing them with an accredited education. Throughout my career in education, I have been active in industry professional associations and government advisory committees and always search for better ways to deliver college services to a vast and varied student population.”
“Our first challenge was to find a proven partner that could provide both a robust learning management system and an online course library that were mutually low-bandwidth friendly. We selected the Learn.com LearnCenter because of the true flexibility of the software and because the company does not use third party components to enhance the functionality of the system. The LearnCenter is 100% Learn.com owned and operated, which gives us peace of mind knowing that there will never be third party hold ups or multiple vendors to contact for support. In addition, Learn.com’s business model makes the integration of content easy and assures that the tracking and reporting are flawless,” said Kent.
“Using LearnCenter, The Online College delivers a wide menu of career diploma programs, certificate courses and GED preparation to students that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The courses are accessible over the internet and can be taken from the comfort of home over a connection speed as low as 28.8 kbps. We are very excited about this new venture and partnership with Learn.com,” said Kent.
