Vigo County School Corporation, the K-12 school district that primarily serves Terre Haute, Ind., has adopted a new digital learning environment (DLE).

Bill Bruce, the district’s director of technology for nine years, said several reasons spurred the choice of Follett Software Company’s Cognite, including the desire to consolidate resources, ease of use, and an ongoing, positive partnership with Follett.

“We looked at other learning environments, but this was by the far the best one for our needs. We will ultimately use it at all of our grade levels,” said Bruce, whose district has 29 schools and nearly 16,000 students.

Given that Vigo schools were already using other Follett Software products -- such as Destiny Library Manager and Destiny Media Manager -- Bruce also stressed the ability to integrate the new DLE with the district’s existing resources.

“We knew we could reduce costs by rolling our information into one interface,” Bruce continued. “And Cognite’s ease of use was a big factor for us, especially as we make it available throughout the district.”

The Cognite digital learning environment brings together discovery, messaging and retrieval tools. Districts can access digital resources from anywhere and access them in one place, providing an online collaboration tool to discover, share and organize.

Cognite has been recognized as a Top 10 finalist for the Innovation Incubator Program, a competition sponsored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) that spotlighted promising new technologies.
