Altius Education’s Ivy Bridge College
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Altius Education’s model is a competency-based, holistic approach to online education addressing four critical needs: student support, engagement, remediation, and affordability. Altius’ Helix learning platform is transforming the courses offered in Ivy Bridge College’s associate’s degree programs with its personalized learning narratives which provide a real-world context for course material, continuous actionable feedback via rubrics and student-facing learning analytics. The model emphasizes not only associate degree completion but also successful transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
The two-page grantee profiles from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) provide factual information about the secondary school and postsecondary degree program designs awarded grants under NGLC's third wave of funding, which focused on two areas, "Breakthrough Models for College Readiness" and "Breakthrough Models for College Completion." Each profile describes what makes each model "breakthrough" and offers important information about the instructional and financial models, student demographics, hardware and software choices, and contact info. These profiles serve to illustrate the innovations of these new blended and online models, with practical details of interest to those starting a new school or degree program.
NGLC accelerates educational innovation through applied technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. To learn more about NGLC and the grantees it supports, visit nextgenlearning.org.
