Lexington, KY (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
Boone Community School District, located in Boone, Iowa, has selected eTechCampus’ Converge as their preferred learning management system.
This news comes as a result of Boone’s extensive exploration for a comprehensive online learning solution to support their growing digital landscape. As the school district prepares to launch a Chromebook initiative for the 2015-2016 school year, Converge provided an intuitive web-based platform that proved a scalable solution with robust third party content integrations.
Explaining why Boone CSD selected Converge, Jill Janes, Director of Innovative Learning, commented:
"With an initial 1:1 rollout of Chromebooks to 1350 students in grades 5-12, it was important for us to select a learning platform that would enhance classroom opportunities across a wide grade-span. Obviously, learning needs of a 5th grader differ greatly from those of a 12th grader. However, we wanted an LMS that would allow us to meet the needs of all of our learners while providing consistency for students and parents. We really felt that Converge's customizable features would allow us to adapt the learning environment while providing the consistent structures we needed."
Kris Byam, Boone High School principal, also commented:
“We wanted to offer our students, families, and community opportunities for anywhere, anytime education. In addition, the integration with Google Apps for Education was very important for our decision, and we really like the design and functionality of Converge.”
Converge is committed to supporting the ever-changing demands of its customers. The platform recently introduced advanced Google Docs integrations making it easier than ever to leverage GAFE environments inside the LMS. Enhanced navigational features streamline content filtering and allow relevant course activities to be accessed from any course page.
