The BSN content library was recently expanded to 212 courses from 192 courses and now features more than 15,000 lessons and 12,000 videos. BSN has seen increased demand for certain online courses that school districts previously struggled to offer due to low enrollment.

“School districts are looking for the best combined solution for their school district. We have worked with LoudCloud so that our customers can now access their LMS platform with our content; students will also benefit from this new technology,” said Jed Friedrichsen, Chief Academic Officer of Sibling Group.

LoudCloud is a behavioral analytics-based teaching and learning ecosystem designed to deliver personalized pathways in education. The core framework, rooted in re-imagined LMS technology, simplifies course and content authoring using proprietary algorithms to inform and guide course progress through recommendations. With innovations in collaborative, digital readers and task centricity, LoudCloud continues to grow business with prominent customers in both the higher education and K-12 sectors while providing platforms for institutions engaging in competency based learning solutions.

“We are pleased to provide the high quality Blended Schools content inside the LoudCloud LMS and FasTrak platforms,” said Manoj Kutty, CEO of LoudCloud Systems. “Our school district clients often want access to high quality content and this integration provides them with another great content source to enhance their performance now and in the future.”

The two groups have already begun reaching out to school districts across the country and are looking at ways to focus on the LoudCloud competency-based learning platform.

Based in Durham, North Carolina, UPM was co-founded in 2007 by its Chief Executive Officer Brian OliverSmith to create quality products utilizing digital technology and mobile devices to reach all people, anywhere, and particularly those with limited or non-existent access to high-quality education. Winner of five global awards for mobile learning, including the GSMA Global Mobile Award for Best Mobile Learning Innovation, UPM creates and distributes content for English language learners, and recently expanded into other areas such as literacy and mobile health. With mobile learning programs recognized for their social and global impact, UPM has one of the largest mobile distribution networks in the education industry and is currently working with more than 36 distributors and 30 mobile operators in over 40 countries worldwide.

Maurine Findley, Sibling’s chief executive officer said, "We are very excited about the prospects of combining the operations of Urban Planet Mobile and Sibling Group. UPM has a great reputation, a strong team, and a proven track record of global sales and marketing. UPM has seen significant growth in emerging markets with education solutions that meet the needs of those countries.” Ms. Findley added, “By combining UPM with our Blended Schools Network operations we will solidify our position as a leader in education solutions. UPM’s management team, led by Brian OliverSmith, will make an excellent addition to the Sibling Group family.

“We see the global education landscape growing exponentially and quickly shifting toward mobile and digital technologies,” OliverSmith said. “UPM’s global distribution relationships can be a key to growing Sibling Group’s award-winning Blended Learning Schools Network solutions internationally. Quite frankly, combining the Blended Schools Network’s powerful libraries of online education content with UPM, an award winning and widely distributed mobile education platform, has the potential to create tremendous value and synergy for shareholders, stakeholders and students.”

SIBLING GROUP’S BLENDED SCHOOLS NETWORK PARTNERS WITH BLOOMBOARD INC FOR TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

AUSTIN, Texas, November 5, 2014 – Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SIBE) (www.siblinggroup.com) (the “Company”), an educational technology holding company, announced today that its Blended Schools Network (“BSN”) division has signed an agreement with BloomBoard, Inc., to become a provider in BloomBoard’s online professional development resource library.

“BloomBoard has developed a platform that empowers teachers and administrators to plan and personalize their professional development,” stated Jason Lange, BloomBoard’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. Teachers use BloomBoard to set their learning goals, from which BloomBoard recommends (based on the teachers’ unique profiles) the best resources from third-party providers. BloomBoard also offers a platform to conduct observations, which can be connected to the resource library as a means to create personalized PD recommendations.

In a recent article in EdSurge*, BloomBoard forecast that by the start of the 2014-2015 school year, their product will be used by over 250,000 teachers in 18 states. BloomBoard reported they have state-level contracts with Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware and North Carolina.

The Blended Schools Network’s professional development suite was created to assist K-12 teachers and administrators in achieving their goals by completing training at a pace that meets their needs. With over 500 hours of content that can be completed in 20-40 minute segments, BSN’s professional development content has already provided a convenient option for the 30,000 teachers within its BSN network. Each of the BSN professional development courses are aligned to iNACOL’s pathway to ensure educator expertise in areas such as Building Online Programs, Building Online Courses, Blended Teaching, Online Teaching and Technology Training.

“Prior to this relationship, the company has not pursued additional markets for our professional development tools outside of the existing Blended Schools Network of school districts. We expect the partnership with BloomBoard will allow us to build new infrastructure and subsequent revenue streams,” said Jed Friedrichsen, Chief Academic Officer of Sibling Group Holdings and CEO of Blended Schools Network. “Our product line and this partnership should enable more teachers to successfully implement online learning in their classrooms.”

Sibling Group Poised to Transform Education Industry


Innovative Technology Holding Company Engaged in Roll-up Strategy


BALTIMORE, Dec. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Goldman Small Cap Research, a stock market research firm focused on the small cap and micro cap sectors, notes that based on recent moves announced by Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB – SIBE), the Company appears poised to transform the fast-growing education technology segment.

In a recently published article, analyst Rob Goldman commented, "By actively embracing new opportunities in digital technology, operations, and curriculum design, education leaders are seeking to re-define and substantially improve education efficacy and performance. This rapid evolution of the education sector is driven by academic leaders seeking more effective, low-cost solutions that fully leverage technology to create the best possible outcomes for students. Through its current and future operations and subsidiaries, Sibling Group sits at the apex of this huge market opportunity."

SIBE has engaged in a targeted rollup strategy that provides the Company with maximum operating leverage and future profitability. SIBE's first acquisition, the Blended Schools Network ("BSN"), is an education company founded by Pennsylvania school superintendents seeking to provide high quality online learning to all K-12 students, including home bound students along with charter and home schooled students.

Today, BSN currently serves 160+ school districts with over 300,000 course enrollments in the 2013/2014 school year. The BSN team has developed more than 200 online courses, 15,000 lessons, 12,000 videos and over 8,000 modules and has garnered an enviable reputation in the online education arena. Leveraging the success of the BSN offering, along with its $3M in annual revenues, SIBE plans to penetrate additional markets nationally and internationally through direct sales and joint marketing agreements.

SIBE recently announced its intention to acquire Urban Planet Mobile Media and Entertainment, Inc., the operator of the award-winning Urban Planet Mobile™ ("UPM") education software platform. The transaction is expected to close by year-end. UPM is an education technology company distributing its proprietary content through mobile carrier networks. The innovative company boasts revenue generating programs in over 50 countries.

Management believes that UPM appears poised to deeply penetrate its target markets with low-cost, in-demand solutions delivered over the fastest growing media, mobile networks. At present, it is estimated that 1.6 billion people, largely living in emerging markets wish to learn English. However, with the associated high cost of classes and the limited number of available qualified teachers in general, this opportunity has not been historically affordable or available to the masses until now.

Today, UPM owns the largest digital library of English language courses that are available for use via the billions of mobile devices around the world. UPM creates and distributes its content for English language learners, and recently expanded into other areas such as literacy and mobile health. With mobile learning programs recognized for their social and global impact, UPM is currently working with more than 36 distributors and 30 mobile operators in over 50 countries worldwide. UPM's platform delivers content to all devices (mobile, tablet, computer) via SMS, IVR/voice, ringtone, apps & mobile web.

Going forward, the domestic success and deep online solutions library offered by BSN combined with the mobile education platform offered by UPM abroad may represent meaningful cross-sale and cross-solution opportunities and broad market penetration for SIBE. As a result, 2015 appears to be shaping up as a banner year for the Company as more complementary firms join the SIBE family.

Sibling Group’s Urban Planet Mobile™ Announces Partnership For Writing Planet™ in Hong Kong Secondary Schools

Sibling Group’s Urban Planet Mobile™ Announces Partnership For Writing Planet™ in Hong Kong Secondary Schools
Writing Planet to be implemented for HKDSE Exam Preparation in Lok Sin Tong Schools

AUSTIN, TX, February 11, 2015 -- Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SIBE), (the "Company" or “Sibling Group”), an educational technology company announced today that its subsidiary Urban Planet Mobile™ (“UPM”) will be implementing its web-based writing practice tool, Writing Planet™, through a partnership with Integrative Counselling Services Limited to work with Lok Sin Tong Schools in Hong Kong, China.

Through this initial purchase, Lok Sin Tong, a non-profit organization in Hong Kong that runs 14 primary and secondary schools, with total enrollments of more than 9,000, will use the technology of Writing Planet for several schools including Lok Sin Tong Young Ko Hsiao Lin Secondary School, Lok Sin Tong Yu Kan Hing Secondary School, and Lok Sin Tong Leung Chik Wai Memorial School, among others.

Writing Planet implementation in Lok Sin Tong Schools is intended to help students better prepare for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) final exam, an exam taken by all college-bound high school seniors. In recent years, emphasis on the English portion of the HKDSE exam has led to increased performance requirements among students indicating growing importance of English skills in Hong Kong and in China.

“There is a growing emphasis in the HKDSE on English language proficiency, and in particular competencies-based skills such as reading and writing,” says Peppina Tse, Vice President of Integrative Counselling Services Limited. “Improving writing skills can be the most difficult task. It has been proven that more writing practice with immediate feedback using programs such as Writing Planet can lead to improved scores.”

The need for Writing Planet comes down to the issue of capacity and student management. Lok Sin Tong secondary schools programs require students to write numerous compositions per semester, each of which require careful grading and feedback from the teacher. This amount of grading is a full load for teachers, who are looking for innovative ways to help students get more opportunities to practice and improve.

“Last year we implemented online reading assessment technology at Lok Sin Tong Yu Kan Hing Secondary School and Lok Sin Tong Young Ko Hsiao Lin Secondary School, Lok Sin Tong Ku Chiu Man Secondary School and Lok Sin Tong Leung Chik Wai Memorial School. The results were so promising that we have now implemented the technology system-wide,” says Jackson Mak, an Education Consultant for Lok Sin Tong Young Ko Hsiao Lin Secondary School. “We see Writing Planet as addressing a similar need to support our teachers in writing instruction. Teachers need powerful tools to enhance their own instruction and teaching, and Writing Planet addresses these needs.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Lok Sin Tong Schools to help students improve their writing skills and prepare for the HKDSE,” said Brian OliverSmith, Co-founder of Urban Planet Mobile and CEO of Sibling Group. “Working with institutional partners who are willing to take a creative approach to improving the level of teaching and learning through innovative online tools is what makes the work we do exciting.”

Writing Planet is currently used by English language learners in the United States and throughout the world in over a dozen countries. In 2013, Writing Planet scored over 700,000 written works through the Writing Planet platform. Writing Planet is powered by the essay-scoring technology, Project Essay Grade™ (PEG), and is the only online writing assessment tool to be nominated for the prestigious CODiE award for best ELL solution.
