Industry Partnership to Release Integrated System for Competency-Based Education

LoudCloud Systems and Greenwood Hall are teaming up to launch an integrated offering for colleges and universities offering competency-based education programs.

LoudCloud offers an e-learning platform, and Greenwood Hall provides a customer service platform for student retention and engagement.

According to the two companies, "This strategic alliance combines Greenwood Hall's online 'Education as a Service' platform with LoudCloud's unique learning and teaching products to bring to market a fully integrated platform that supports the entire student journey. Education institutions will now have access to all the enterprise services they require to offer competency-based academic offerings including market research, lead generation, recruitment, student services, executive coaching to maximize retention, instructional design support, and career placement supported by a learning management ecosystem that includes adaptive LMS technology designed for CBE programs and a powerful analytics engine."

The technology and services package will provide "all the tools administrators and educators need to efficiently implement student lifecycle and engagement initiatives that are so critical to attracting and retaining students today," according to John Hall, CEO of Greenwood Hall.

The two companies are expecting to release additional integrated solutions in the future.

Additional details are available through Greenwood Hall or LoudCloud.
