Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) September 23, 2011
uBoost, the nation’s premiere online student performance recognition and rewards platform, announced today its Freemium Partnership Program. Recent uBoost partnerships include top learning platforms such as EduTone, Emantras, and Prazas; online content providers like Education2020 and Scientific Learning; and tutoring providers such as Kaplan and Educate Online. These partners leverage uBoost’s student motivation tools to make their platform more engaging to students, teachers and parents.
By integrating their platform with uBoost, partners are able to differentiate their product by offering their clients a freemium set of motivational tools that work seamlessly to inspire activities like attendance, assignment completion and course progression. Recognition is delivered in real-time via a widget that doesn’t require user interface redesign since it sits as a header or footer on selected partner web pages. Customers of uBoost’s partners will have the option to upgrade their programs to implement a fully customized catalog, badge set and branding.
John Bower, CEO of uBoost said “Our customers are integrating uBoost to make their programs more engaging for students so they repeat desired activities such as attendance, homework, and participation, and they earn points while making progress towards rewards including leaderboard rankings, collectable badges, and merchandise. Our clients have seen dramatic gains in student retention, performance and customer renewals within just a few months of adding our tools. Each customer program is customized based on demographic and budget requirements. Customers choose the rewards categories offered, the types of encouraged activities and the exact branding of their program. uBoost is continuing to partner with the leading learning platforms and online content providers to offer effective, low-cost student motivation solutions.”
