Montreal, Quebec – April 9, 2021 – Explorance is pleased to announce a partnership with the Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC). The consortium has selected the Blue Experience Management (XM) platform to automate feedback gathering and reporting related to seven state community colleges’ online courses.
As an organization dedicated to supporting remote learning, the ICCOC identified Blue’s ability to roll up course evaluation information across disparate courses and enable the rapid distribution of reports to numerous stakeholders as crucial.
Blue’s comprehensive integration options with the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS), as utilized across ICCOC members, was also cited as an important selection factor. By unifying data, including data stored in LMSs, Blue can help member institutions better focus on improving the student experience.
Blue’s world-class, 24/7 support was also an important factor in the ICCOC selection decision.
Commenting on the selection, ICCOC Executive Director Theresa Umscheid (Zeigler) stated:
“The Iowa Community College Online Consortium (ICCOC) is excited to begin its partnership with Blue to strengthen our course evaluation process across all course modalities. Our goal is to provide high-quality online education and student feedback is a big part of our continual improvement process. We look forward to Blue’s integration with our LMS to provide ease-of-use for our instructors and students.”
