BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthology, a leading provider of education solutions that support the entire learner lifecycle, today announced new partnerships with three colleges within the Wisconsin Technical College System – Northwood Technical College, Lakeshore Technical College and Mid-State Technical College – to deploy Anthology Student as well as a host of Anthology's Enterprise Resources, Enterprise Performance, Assessment Management, Enrollment and Retention, Career Development and Alumni and Advancement solutions.
Anthology Student's modern, intuitive user experience coupled with Anthology's broader ecosystem of solutions will streamline and simplify registration, financial aid, advising, career planning and other processes for the colleges' students, so they can focus on learning and achieving their desired outcomes. Degree planning and guided pathways tools in Student will also give learners real-time visibility into progress along their academic journey to help them better plan for the future and clearly map next steps to reach their goals.
"Technology provides a critical interface between our college and community, and based on our selection process, we believe Anthology's products and services will help us reimagine and support the student and customer experience," said Dr. John Will, President of Northwood Technical College.
"We are driven to connect our students with the skills they need to fill good paying job vacancies in our communities," said Lakeshore Technical College President Dr. Paul Carlsen. "Our partnership with Anthology will empower us to more efficiently meet the demands of a dynamic local economy and provide students with the knowledge they need to improve their lives."
"Mid-State serves the diverse and changing educational needs of central Wisconsin, and we believe the right degree, credential or skillset unlocks opportunity for our learners," said Dr. Shelly Mondeik, President of Mid-State Technical College. "Anthology understands that deep connection to the community and is committed to building a relationship that helps Mid-State equip our learners to succeed."
These agreements mark a deepening of the relationships between each college and Anthology. All three institutions use Anthology's learning management system, Blackboard Learn, and are continuing to build out a flexible, scalable ecosystem designed to deliver intelligent experiences in partnership with Anthology.
"The skills required of workers in the 21st century economy continue to rapidly evolve and technical colleges like Northwood, Mid-State and Lakeshore are critical in providing access and a path for learners to gain the skills, credentials and degrees they need," said Anthology Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jim Milton. "We're committed to serving these learners across Wisconsin and excited about the possibilities deploying more Anthology solutions can unlock for these colleges."
