For its higher education partners, MindEdge is a reliable source for both undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as for the development of new online programs with little upfront investment and exceptional learner feedback and results.
Continuing education partners of MindEdge often utilize the management and business education programs offered at MindEdge Online (www.mindedgeonline.com) as a turn-key solution to keep in touch with alumni and stay up to date with their offerings to the community.
In addition, MindEdge offers a Virtual Orientation program, which introduces students to university life and helps to prepare them for success. Learners find MindEdge's courses engaging, interactive, and designed for clarity and concision.
MindEdge's modular content can be customized and shaped to fit higher education or continuing education programs and can be integrated into current offerings.
Higher Education Case Studies:
- Higher Education Turn-key Solutions Challenge
A liberal arts college wanted to quickly enter the distance learning market by introducing online education to its undergraduates, but lacked a learning management system (LMS) and course offerings.
MindEdge provided a turn-key solution, customizing online courses from its course library, training the college's instructor in the use of the MindEdge Course Management System (CMS), providing orientation for students, and launching the program in time for the start of the semester.
- Undergraduate Course Development Challenge
A leading online university struggled with student skills in basic areas of language and communication.
MindEdge worked closely with the university's faculty to design and build an online learning resource in modular format with video examples, tutorials, and other interactive exercises to challenge and engage learners in the "facebook generation." The online university was able to educate and track learner progress for over 500 learners in the first month.
- Graduate Course Development Challenge
A graduate program wanted to offer its students an online leadership course based on a book by a Harvard Business School professor.
MindEdge collaborated with the author to design and build a leadership course that incorporates audio, video and interactive exercises to challenge and engage students. The course proved successful at HBS, and condensed versions of the content have been used by many of MindEdge's partners.
Continuing Education Case Studies:
- Leadership Training for a Corporate Client Challenge
A successful Continuing Education Department at a mid-sized college was asked by a corporate customer whether it could provide blended face-to-face and online management and leadership training to its global workforce.
MindEdge collaborated with the Continuing Education Department and on-site instructors to customize its leadership program with specific company examples and exercises to make the learning relevant for employees.
- Offering Non-Credit Courses Challenge
A successful Continuing Education Department at a small college wanted to offer non-credit online leadership, management and business training as a service to its students employed at local companies.
MindEdge provided a turn-key solution, partnering with the Continuing Education Department to offer online management courses from MindEdge Online (www.mindedgeonline.com) at a group discounted price.
- Customized Modular Learning for Test Preparation Challenge
The development of an online test-preparation program for Boston University's Continuing Education Department.
MindEdge designed and built a four-part online Certified Management Accountant test-prep program for Boston University; the program has allowed the education of overseas students and the continuous offering of the course throughout the school year.
