Edgenuity Rolls Out Suite of Career and Technical Education Electives(February 13, 2018)
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 13, 2018
Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning programs, today announced that it now offers students more learning opportunities with the addition of more than 50 new career and general elective courses to its platform. Middle and high school students can engage in a range of interests and skills –from Journalism to Forensic Science– through courses provided by eDynamic Learning, North America's largest provider of career and elective courses.
“Research has shown that taking career readiness courses can improve a student's overall engagement, academic success and motivation to graduate on time," said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “Students should have the opportunity to pursue their interests while in school, and we are proud to provide curriculum that will help students prepare for lifelong success at a pace and style that works for them."
eDynamic Learning courses give students exposure to some of the fastest-growing industries and jobs through a wide range of topics such as Business and Marketing, Energy and Conservation, Law and National Security, and STEM. A few of the new courses include:
- Introduction to Renewable Technologies
- Music Appreciation: The Enjoyment of Listening
- Criminology: Inside the Criminal Mind
- African-American History
- Introduction to Manufacturing Product Design and Innovation
- Principles of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources
“In choosing a platform that could host our courses, it was important to us that we teamed up with the company that could provide a wide reach and had a proven track record of success," said Kevin Viau, founder of eDynamic Learning. “Edgenuity is the ideal partner for us in this endeavor, not only because of the diverse capabilities of their programs, but because of how many students and educators interact with their learning solutions every year."
The courses feature reflective writing assignments, interactive activities, and a variety of learning scaffolds, such as read-aloud and digital note-taking tools. Schools can use their own teachers or Edgenuity Instructional Services virtual teachers to deliver instruction in a blended or virtual learning environment. Additionally, several of the eDynamic Learning courses have been approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), making them eligible to be used by student-athletes to fulfill their academic requirements.
All courses can be accessed via Edgenuity's learning environment, creating a seamless experience for students enrolled in other Edgenuity courses. This partnership with eDynamic Learning marks the growing capability of Edgenuity's platform to offer courses developed by an outside provider.
