Indianapolis, Ind.–April 30, 2007–ANGEL Learning, recognized innovator of enterprise elearning software and services, today announced the integration of ANGEL LMS with Tegrity, a leading provider of student achievement systems. Seamless integration of ANGEL with the Tegrity Campus 2.0 next-generation web-based solution enables ANGEL users access to Tegrity´s class recordings, digital notes technology and podcasting solutions directly from within the ANGEL learning environment, through a single sign-in.
Santa Clara University in California is the first institution to apply the enhancements. Santa Clara University adopted ANGEL LMS in 2003 and adopted Tegrity technology to extend the value of its ANGEL adoption in 2005. "Providing students with flexible media and technology tools to suit their individual learning styles and help them achieve their academic potential is an important element of our strategy to maximize student success," said Ron Danielson, CIO of Santa Clara University. "The integration of Tegrity Campus 2.0 with ANGEL LMS significantly simplifies the management of Tegrity recordings through ANGEL. This allows many more courses to record the classroom experience for later review, which we believe positively impacts student learning on our campus, without increases in support staff."
"ANGEL and Tegrity share a vision for improving teaching and learning by providing students with the tools and resources that will lead them to succeed," said Isaac Segal, president and CEO of Tegrity. "Our partnership with ANGEL is strong, and we will continue working together to ensure that our customers are provided solutions that fulfill their changing needs."
"Tegrity produces a unique solution to capture, index and store class content, extending learning opportunities for ANGEL customers," said Christopher D. Clapp, president and CEO, ANGEL Learning. "Santa Clara University´s enthusiasm for the seamless ANGEL-Tegrity integration is evidence of the power of cooperatively developing solutions that meet evolving educational needs."
The inherent openness of the ANGEL system enables integrations with complementing technologies that leverage core ANGEL functionality and add value to ANGEL adoptions. The Tegrity integration with ANGEL allows Tegrity to use course catalog and student enrollment data in ANGEL to organize course content and manage user access, eliminating the need for manual scheduling, uploading or access rights management.
