BNED LoudCloud builds software that improves learning. By focusing on 4 key areas – Learning Analytics, Competency Based Education, Learning Management, and Next Generation Learning Materials including advanced OER Courseware, BNED LoudCloud serves educators and students in higher education, and increasingly, K-12 institutions to address the challenges of affordability, accessibility and retention.
Learning Analytics: Faculty and administration face the challenging task of improving student outcomes without having the necessary resources and insight. LoudCloud solves this problem by identifying the students that need a hand and distilling the right information to enable and empower faculty and advisors to improve student outcomes and retention.
Competency Based Education (CBE): Skill gaps, fast changing labor markets and tuition costs have forced institutions to think of innovative ways to better prepare students for the workforce. The CBE solution tackles this challenge head on by helping institutions design and launch programs that shift the focus from seat time to skill acquisition.
Learning Management: There are so many stakeholders that influence the student’s journey and it is hard getting them all on the same page. LoudCloud’s simple SaaS based LMS is designed around students, faculty and administrations so that it doesn’t get in the way, and instead, becomes an enabler in driving student and institutional success.
