eDoorways (OTCBB: EDWY) today announced the development of a new educational product/service offering called the “LearnChannel”. The development of LearnChannels will be a collaborative effort with input from ISTEC (Ibero-American Science Education Technology Consortium) and UNM (University of New Mexico). The two entities have agreed to provide eDoorways with expert guidance and client-oriented support to assure that LearnChannels realize their true potential.
“Recent discussions with our associated organizations have made it clear that the time for a new collaborative learning venue such as the LearnChannel is now,” said Gary Kimmons, CEO of eDoorways. In view of the positive reception our PowerChannels are receiving, deploying specialized versions of them in the public and private education markets could prove to be very productive.”
LearnChannels are a logical extension of eDoorways’ recent advancements with its PowerChannel and LEARN technologies. Two types of channels are contemplated with the first focusing on group-based collaborative learning and the second on individual self-paced educational experiences. It is anticipated that the company’s advanced SmartOne intelligent teaching technology will be leveraged to empower the individual self-learning version of the LearnChannel.
“There are a number of challenges facing our institutions of higher education, such as preparing our young generation for a tougher work environment and striving to effectively apply limited resources,” continued Kimmons. We’re pleased to be able to draw upon the knowledge and expertise that ISTEC and UNM will provide as we roll out LearnChannels. We want to bring a powerful new educational tool to all schools across America.”
Newly-appointed eDoorways board member and founder of ISTEC Dr. Ramiro Jordan stated “we see big possibilities as these powerful new tools emerge. The LearnChannel can do for educational collaboration what PowerChannels will be doing for information dissemination, cross-cultural sharing and business development. ISTEC will begin testing the functionality of the LearnChannel as soon as eDoorways hands us the keys.”
A primary focus of the LearnChannel will be ease of use. Versatility will also be paramount as it is anticipated that a wide range of course builders from novices to professional developers will select it as a viable learning avenue. Like PowerChannels, the new channels will employ eDoorways’ PowerKey functionality along with other standard PowerChannel functional elements. In addition, LearnChannels will incorporate the ability for course designers to design unique learning experiences and to select from a number of teaching modalities.
“This is a key step as we move toward our vision of the LEARN doorway – our platform’s interactive educational modality,” continued Gary Kimmons.
Certainly, there will be more to come as we continue to profit from the tremendous input we are receiving.”
