Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) January 13, 2011
Critical Links, a pioneer in delivering Information & Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure solutions for School 2.0 - the next-generation of schools, announced today that it is partnering with Agile Learning to deliver sophisticated education information systems (EMIS) solutions to schools world-wide using the Critical Links Education Appliance platforms.
Agile Learning is a member of the Critical Links School2.0 Alliance™ and is a leader in developing EMIS, GIS and other information systems solutions for the education sector. Agile Learning’s award-winning integrated AgileSAMS and AgileEMIS solutions provide mission-critical information for monitoring and evaluation, planning, and decision-making related to education programs for approximately 30,000 schools, serving approximately 12 million students.
Based on the Intel Learning Series, the Critical Links Education Appliance is an industry-leading platform unrivaled in the level of integration and support, enabled by the School 2.0 Alliance™. Agile Learning’s school-based MIS solution, the AgileSAMS can now be delivered over the Critical Links Education Appliance™, fully integrated and pre-tested for interoperability with other software components needed for the school 2.0 ICT infrastructure. Education administrators will have the option of integrating the AgileSAMS implementation as part of a district, regional or national implementation under EMIS or other major enterprise programs. Education Management Information Systems (EMIS) aggregate and disaggregate critical educational information from all schools to monitor, evaluate and plan program implementations across the education enterprise on a centralized and decentralized basis.
Critical Links’ Education Appliance is the world’s first fully integrated, comprehensive solution for schools that combines learning, networking and administration capabilities on a single server platform (a cloud-based solution is also available at this time). The Critical Links education appliance has been deployed at over 1200 schools in the world’s largest school modernization program and this platform has been recognized with numerous industry awards.
“We are delighted to welcome Agile Learning to the school 2.0 Alliance™. Their advanced MIS solution working in tandem with the Education Appliance is a true game-changer for schools and education administrators, by allowing them to make intelligent decisions consistently”, commented Abdul Kasim, Vice President of Marketing and Global Business Development at Critical Links.
