Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Many institutions provide in-person continuing education training, but do not have an easy way of providing this service over the Web. On the other hand, some colleges have attempted to provide this service online through a complex and confusing interweaving of their student information system, learning management system, and e-commerce solutions. Both of these approaches have significant limitations.
Edvance360’s new Continuing Education Suite addresses these challenges by providing a seamless, “off the shelf” solution for institutions desiring to increase revenues by providing continuing education.
“Edvance360 sees Continuing and Professional Education as an integral part of our strategy to provide a collaborative approach that engages workers in life-long learning,” said Cathy Garland, Vice-President of Marketing & Sales. “Our clients can now create Continuing Education courses and specify passing criteria, so that students can immediately print a certificate of completion and/or store it to their ePortfolio.”
Relevant Continuing Education statistics for employed persons (17 years old and over):
- 39% are taking career/job-related courses
- 22% are taking personal interest or personal development courses
- 74% are participating in collaborative learning activities for personal development
