Lexington, KY (PRWEB) August 10, 2016
Pulaski County Schools, located in Somerset KY, has selected Converge, an Edvergent Learning product, as their preferred learning management system, enhancing the district’s participation in Kentucky’s Non-Traditional Instruction Program (NTI).
NTI allows districts to conduct school through virtual or other non-traditional avenues on days when the schools would normally be closed due to inclement weather. Pulaski County Schools chose Converge LMS to provide a comprehensive online learning environment for NTI where teachers can facilitate instruction, create collaborative online discussions, administer assessments, and increase communication with parents and the community, all from one standardized web-based platform .
Beyond NTI, Converge enables the school district to provide anywhere, anytime learning opportunities for its students. Converge’s K-12-friendly interface also propels the district’s Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) environment, making it even easier to support blended learning for all students with accessibility from any device.
Explaining why Pulaski County Schools selected Converge, Teresa Nicholas, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, stated:
“We wanted an effective way for our teachers and students to connect and collaborate online. Converge offered a flexible platform that supports multiple assignment submission types, immediate feedback, and an intuitive interface that is proven extensible and customizable. With simple content creation, import, and sharing features, we now have a solution that supports all learners.”
As the new technology is implemented, Edvergent will provide hands-on training to support a successful and sustainable solution.
Converge is committed to supporting the ever-changing educational landscape, as evidenced by the recent release of Converge 2.0 with increased communication channels, improved workflows, and a redesigned dashboard interface for an optimum user experience.
