Learn.com®, the leader in on-demand workforce development and productivity, announced today that the National FFA Foundation, on behalf of the National Council for Agricultural Education, has selected the Learn.com LearnCenter® platform, a talent management suite, to centralize on-demand learning for agricultural educators and students through the Ag Ed Learning Center (AELC).
"We needed a hosted solution, that would host and launch standardized online content for agricultural educators and support a geographically dispersed student population of 500,000 in more than 7,000 local chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands," said Bill Hale, Executive Director, Ag Ed Learning Center.
"Learn.com's LearnCenter platform is a great fit for our requirements. In addition to being delivered in a "Software as a Service" modality, (SaaS), this robust suite offers us the flexibility to accomplish our training, development and collaboration goals and objectives. In addition, the LearnCenter platform will allow us to migrate our existing LifeKnowledge® product, including lesson plans, online coaching guide and student assessments, as the first subscription offering of the AELC. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with Learn.com," added Hale.
