Brooklyn, NY, Washington, DC – November 4, 2016
-- Sagence Learning, Inc. the leading provider of competency-based technology
designed to empower colleges and universities to provide flexible, learner-directed,
affordable education, today announced a partnership with Central New Mexico
Community College (CNM). CNM joins other innovative institutions already
deploying Sagence Learning technology to enable higher education institutions to
close the education and workplace divide.
"For more than 50 years, we have built a strong reputation in the
community for providing high-quality, affordable instruction that has prepared
countless people for rewarding careers in the community,” said Kalynn Pirkl,
CNM Associate Dean in the School of Business & Information Technology.
“We’re looking forward to working with Sagence Learning in our efforts to
establish a high-quality CBE program that prepares students for success in
their learning objectives and for success in the workplace when they graduate.”
CNM students enrolled in the program will utilize
Sagence Learning’s Cognify platform for a content-rich learning experience
fully integrated with CNM’s existing learning management system. Powered by Sagence Learning’s Certify technology,
faculty will utilize dashboard metrics to facilitate student academic
progress. Coaches will have access to a
distinct set of analytics designed to help support students as they navigate
the work/life/education balance.
"It is time we bridge the gap between
education and the workplace. Our integrated CBE technology platform enables
colleges to design and build programs aligned with demonstrable skill
measurement leading to degree completion and career alignment", said Jade
Roth, Sagence Learning, Inc.’s Chief
Executive Officer. “This approach is
well aligned to CNM's goal of ensuring learning and support that promotes
student persistence in achievement of education and workplace goals.”
