CourseAtlas™

Current trends in enrollment, persistence and attainment dictate the need for ed tech that will help states and institutions connect meaningfully with nontraditional students. The challenge is to provide them a virtual gateway to timely academic advising resources, while reducing administrative workload.

The CourseAtlas™ is a suite of off-the-shelf products that utilize a shared repository of integrated data to evaluate and promote how all types of learning is equivalent to college credit.

Advancing college completion starts by giving students the tools that improve the accuracy of information they receive and the efficiency of how it is delivered.
