By K16 Solutions in In The News, Press Release | May 12, 2021
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — K16 Solutions, the industry leader in EdTech for Learning Management System (LMS) course migration, course design, and course archiving, announced a significant partnership agreement with Open LMS, a subsidiary of Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG) and a leading provider of open-source LMS solutions.
K16 Solutions gives institutions the ability to streamline the once arduous and expensive LMS migration process. Using Scaffold, K16’s content migration and development platform, institutions can migrate course content from one LMS platform to another more quickly and accurately, archive student data more affordably, and build best-in-class courses more seamlessly.
Through this partnership, Open LMS is able to make the LMS migration and onboarding process for new clients more seamless, eliminating some of the complexities that universities face when moving between LMS providers. Rather than starting from scratch or being faced with expensive course migration options, Open LMS and K16 Solutions provide an affordable and streamlined solution for migrating new clients to Open LMS’s product portfolio, including Open LMS EDU, Open LMS WORK, and Totara Learn.
“Our goal is to provide the best possible learning experience for students using the best learning technology on the market,” said Phill Miller, Managing Director at Open LMS. “We see a real trend of clients moving to open-source platforms like Open LMS. Our partnership with K16 Solutions allows institutions to more easily migrate their course content to Open LMS, where students, faculty, and staff can take advantage of a world-class LMS solution and industry-leading support. We are delighted to be working with K16 Solutions and leveraging their powerful migration and archiving technology to support new and existing Open LMS clients.”
Said Dr. Thomas Waite, president, and CEO at K16 Solutions, “I am thrilled to have signed this partnership with Open LMS, and we look forward to playing an integral part in helping them help institutions. I believe this agreement is proof that our revolutionary Scaffold technology is beginning to disrupt the higher education landscape. What our technology really offers is the ability for institutions to freely move about the LMS market without the fear or burden they have normally faced—which is migrating from one platform to another without straining financial and human capital.”
K16 Solutions can migrate 6,000 courses per week per institution; its customers include a long list of institutions such as Northeastern University, Wake Forest University, Rutgers University, Mohawk College, Ottawa University, University of South Alabama, and Loyola University New Orleans, to name a few.
