(January 2013) Edvance360, winner of the 2011 CODiE Award for Best Post-Secondary Course or Learning Management System, will exhibit at the ABACC/ABHE Conference in Orlando, Florida. The conference will be held from February 13th through the 16th and is open to all member and candidate schools.
Edvance360 will provide expert information and free access to online educational software pilots or MOOCs to all ABACC/ABHE schools to help them take advantage of the online enrollments that have been growing substantially faster than overall higher education enrollments.
- Many experts suggest that by 2014, 81% of post-secondary students in the US will be taking some or all of their courses online, and project this figure would rise to 81% by 2014.
- SLOAN-C reports that due to the economic downturn and the demand by students for affordable options, online enrollments have jumped significantly: 73% of higher education institutions report an increased demand for existing online courses and 45% of those without online courses report a demand for new online courses.
“Before Edvance360, online education software was both expensive and difficult to implement, which kept small to medium-sized religious schools from being able to take advantage of the financial growth that online enrollments can provide,” said Cathy Garland, Vice-President of Marketing & Sales. “Now, with Edvance360, they can afford our easy to use software, backed by a fanatical support team! With our social networking and retention features, these schools can build relationships with students and alumni that will last a lifetime.”
