Waterloo, Ontario (PRWEB) April 27, 2013
Canadore College and ClevrU Corporation announced a new collaboration today to deliver advanced online learning opportunities to Brazil and China.
International students have a significant economic impact to Canada. According to Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, total expenditures by international students resulted in a $6.5 billion infusion to the Canadian economy in 2008. There is a greater demand for higher education in emerging markets such as South America and Asia in order to bolster their economic development.
“Canadore is being recognized as a leader in education by many international markets,” said George Burton, President of Canadore College. “By partnering with ClevrU, we can use a platform that can deal with different languages, mobile devices and operating systems that will maintain our program integrity and make it available globally.”
The College chose to collaborate with ClevrU, a dynamic, multilingual world-class learning platform, for its best practices in removing the barriers to international online education delivery. The company is renowned for being able to create a supportive learning environment for international students and while delivering rich and customized multi-media e-Teaching content.
“Canadore is a natural partner for us. Their focus on delivering clear pathways for developing vocational skills will lead to employment success,” said Mark Arnason, CEO of ClevrU. “This approach is highly valued by students in emerging markets looking to expand their career horizons.”
Chinese and Brazilian students will be able to access video audio, presentation slides and various other learning resources for Canadore’s Mobile Application Development program as early as September 2013 with additional courses to follow.
Canadore provides access to over 60 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and student services. Each year, approximately 1,000 graduates join a network of 39,000 alumni working around the globe.
