Academic Partnerships Acquires Curriculum Mapping Software

Online program management company Academic Partnerships has acquired Coursetune, a maker of curriculum mapping software that provides visualization tools for curriculum and course design.

Academic Partnerships plans to maintain the Coursetune brand, according to a news announcement, and the software "will remain available to customers on a stand-alone basis." In addition, "the companies will examine ways their customers can benefit from the others' offerings," the announcement said.

"This acquisition builds on the combined strengths of both AP and Coursetune and furthers our ability to meet the increasingly diverse and complex needs of our university partners and their faculty by providing a powerful software solution that helps institutions demonstrate high-quality outcomes and workforce alignment in their online offerings," commented Academic Partnerships CEO Rob Ganji, in a statement. "Most importantly, Coursetune has a strong commitment to increasing quality learning experiences with equity and access for students everywhere. They are a natural extension of AP's mission to expand access to top-quality, affordable and workforce-relevant education, especially for students who are working adults like nurses and teachers. We look forward to integrating Coursetune's dynamic visualization software into the support services for our partners, almost all of whom are regional public universities."

"We will continue to scale and accelerate our current product roadmap, and now we will have access to even more support and resources that will benefit educators and their students," noted Maria Andersen, Coursetune CEO. "We built Coursetune specifically to solve complex problems, and AP focuses on student populations that can truly benefit from these solutions. It takes all of us working together to comprehensively help support increased access to affordable, top-quality education."
