New York, NY (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
New York-based eLearning management company GlobalLogix Solutions (GLS) has announced a partnership with the Herald Foundation, a non-profit New York organization, aimed at bridging the educational disparity gap through quality online academic and career-oriented programs for nontraditional and underserved students. Available through GLS’s LogixLMS comprehensive eLearning platform, the program offers flexibility and convenience, as well as enhances the quality of the curriculum by utilizing in-depth behavioral, language, and interaction analytics tools of LogixLMS.
Recent statistics provided by a Brookings study showed that nearly half (43%) of all US job openings require a Bachelor’s Degree or higher. Today, only 30% of Americans 25 and older, 17% of African-Americans and 15% of Hispanics, the nation’s fastest growing demographic, possess the needed credentials. The new partnership strives to eliminate some of the key factors in unequal access to higher education, and provide quality post-secondary programs for those who need it most.
“The analytical power behind LogixLMS made it the perfect e-learning partner for us,” said Alena Gromova, Executive Director of the Herald Foundation. “The ability to fine-tune the curriculum and offer a more personalized way of program delivery will ensure the quality of distance learning and secure higher completion rates for our participants.”
Founded with a mission to make colleges more accessible to nontraditional and underserved students through distance learning options, the Herald Foundation is committed to preparing students for four-year academic institutions, integrating career-related objectives with the broader educational curriculum, and empowering the new generation to have productive and successful lives.
“Unequal access to quality education is one of the key factors contributing to social inequality on the global scale,” said Lena Feygin, CEO of GlobalLogix Solutions. “Our partnership with the Herald Foundation is the first of many steps to erase those academic disparities in the US and around the world, and to do so effectively with the comprehensive data analytics that LogixLMS brings to the table.”
Created and managed by GlobalLogix Solutions, LogixLMS is built on the principles of social constructivism, a theory that emphasizes the importance of dynamic interaction among the participants. The platform’s proprietary analytical infrastructure includes behavioral and natural language metrics, boosting program retention and success. Recognized for raising the bar on the quality of distance learning, GlobalLogix Solutions has been supported by academic institutions, corporate enterprises, and government offices in Eastern Europe and Latin America.
