Sibling’s Blended Schools Network and LoudCloud Team Up to Accelerate Online Learning Organizations will market and sell Blended Schools Network’s content in LoudCloud LMS
AUSTIN, Texas, October 14, 2014 – Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SIBE) (www.siblinggroup.com) (the “Company”), an educational technology holding company, announces that it has signed an agreement with LoudCloud to bring online, blended and competency-based learning to more K-12 students. The groups have worked together to install Blended Schools Network (BSN) content on the LoudCloud learning management system (LMS).
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. This past year, BSN had more than 300,000 enrollments and product demand has expanded from traditional regional focus to national as well as international interest.
“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.
