Among online associate's degree programs, I know of no other institution that is offering the degree of support and transferability to every student
Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 20, 2008
Students at Tiffin University's Ivy Bridge College have more opportunities for educational success using one of the most reliable online learning systems in the world, resulting from a new partnership between the university and eCollege.
Beginning this fall, students in Ivy Bridge College, an innovative online associate of arts degree program in general studies, will use eCollege, the nation's leading provider of a comprehensive course management system and associated services, for all of their online courses.
"eCollege's comprehensive learning platform offers Ivy Bridge students effective online programs in a reliable course management system," said Dr. Cam Cruickshank, Managing Director of Ivy Bridge College and Vice President for Enrollment Management at Tiffin University.
"We offer the best online learning solution in the industry, and I'm confident that this partnership will enable even more Tiffin students to achieve their educational goals," said Matt Leavy, Chief Executive Officer of eCollege.
The partnership will enhance students' online learning experiences by leveraging both organizations' services. eCollege's ClassLive ProTM service, powered by Elluminate, adds live discussion and dynamic interaction between students and professors and among student groups. This interaction will be complemented further by Ivy Bridge College's use of success coaches, who help students with organizational and time management skills, staying on task, problem resolution, living a healthy lifestyle and college survival skills. The university's online tutoring service will help them with their coursework.
"Among online associate's degree programs, I know of no other institution that is offering the degree of support and transferability to every student," said Cruickshank. "We think today's high school graduates and working professionals are going to find Ivy Bridge College an affordable and convenient way to obtain a college degree."
