The Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC) has renewed the contract with its online learning platform provider, extending a relationship that dates back 12 years. The consortium will continue to use Pearson’s LearningStudio, a scalable software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform designed for the creation, management, and analysis of online courses. It includes social media tools, such as profiles, chat, avatars, groups, activity feed, and Skype videoconferencing. Students can access the platform from anywhere using a customizable mobile site. In addition, LearningStudio provides a variety of assessment and analytics tools for instructors to track student progress and discover at-risk students.
