Campbell, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
EmpoweredU, a Silicon Valley-based education technology company, is pleased to announce that Paul Roberge has joined the company as President. EmpoweredU recently released its new learning platform with advanced mobile and analytics capabilities and an innovative licensing model.
Roberge brings a strong history of leadership in the education technology space. He joins the company after serving as Global Vice President for Blackboard, Inc., a position he assumed upon Blackboard’s acquisition of Elluminate, Inc., where he served as Vice President, Sales and Business Development. Additionally, he has held senior leadership positions with leading technology companies, including Centra Software, Alchemedia, and Virage.
“We are delighted to have Paul Roberge join the Empowered team,” said EmpoweredU CEO Steve Poizner. “We had very specific criteria for our President, and we were fortunate to find Paul. He not only has the depth of experience in education technology, but also truly understands how the right technology can enable student engagement and success. We’re confident that his experience will enhance the company’s position as a leader in learning engagement technology.”
The EmpoweredU Learning Platform was created to be more engaging than legacy learning management systems and to support today’s students who expect access to their courses anytime, anywhere, from any device. The visually appealing interface was designed to delight users and provide a consistent experience as students switch between smartphone, tablet and laptop. The offline capabilities of EmpoweredU also make it possible for on-the-go students to work from anywhere, whether or not they have Wi-Fi connectivity.
“Our mobile-first design will enable today’s learners-on-the-go to stay engaged in their learning,” according to Roberge. “Students today expect a top notch mobile experience from every company or educational institution they touch. EmpoweredU has cracked the code on how to use technology to actually engage learners, not just manage courses. I am excited about the possibilities it opens up for improving the educational experience.”
The EmpoweredU team combines passion and experience in the education sector with a strong track record of building best-in-class technology to improve the education experience. We empower institutions, schools and organizations to transform their traditional programs to improve learner engagement and outcomes.
EmpoweredU is an enterprise-class learning platform that offers a simple, elegant navigation for any course by fully exploiting the native functionality of mobile devices, empowering teaching and learning on-the-go. EmpoweredU greatly enhances student-to-student collaboration and student-to-instructor communication, and is designed for easy integration with existing Student Information Systems (SIS) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems.
