Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
PLATO Learning, a leading provider of online education solutions for pre-kindergarten through adult learners, has partnered with Calgary-based eDynamic Learning to deliver an expanded offering of online electives courses. Together, they provide schools and districts with the curriculum needed for core and elective courses to effectively prepare students for college and career.
The Secondary Electives Library includes 24 semester-long courses for students in grades 9-12 including psychology, sociology, forensic science, music appreciation, and photography. This diverse offering of electives keeps students motivated and engaged in the learning process and gives them the opportunity to pursue their choice of a broad range of interests.
“We have always been focused on working with schools and teachers to improve student achievement,” said Vin Riera, PLATO Learning president and chief executive officer. “Our new electives library will help in that mission by giving students choices, and by further engaging them in learning by allowing them to pursue subjects that are of interest to them. We’re very pleased to partner with eDynamic Learning to provide the best selection of electives in online learning.”
“The quality of our courses has always been extremely important to us,” said Kevin Viau, president and chief executive officer of eDynamic Learning. “In selecting a partner, we were looking for an organization that shared that value and the quality and effectiveness of PLATO Learning courses is what it has built its reputation on. We are very excited to have such a strong and committed partner in expanding access to electives for learners.”
