Learning platform adds digital resource

ePals, Inc. today announced a strategic partnership with global learning solutions provider,Agilix Labs. ePals is extending its LearningSpace product with the opportunity for schools to add components of Agilix’s BrainHoney LMS (learning management system). ePals' role- and policy-based controls will provide an end-to-end, safe and secure learning environment across this full suite of communication, collaboration and learning management capabilities. Customers will be able to deploy the comprehensive solution on a school- or district-wide basis later this year. Following ePals’ recent partnership with Dell, ePals and Agilix will also provide an integrated solution as part of the Dell Connected Classroom.

“The vision at ePals is to offer integrated communication, collaboration and learning management capabilities with unified policy management to maximize classroom effectiveness,” said Ed Fish, president of ePals. “Agilix recognizes the unique ways the ePals platform harnesses communication, collaboration and social media to create an engaging online context for meaningful learning. Together, we’re providing a holistic, end-to-end, CIPA/FERPA/COPPA-compliant learning platform for school districts to build out detailed curricula, facilitate collaboration and assess progress within the workspace where students are most engaged.”

Integrated through the ePals SchoolSafe™ desktop, schools looking for traditional LMS functionality will be able to add BrainHoney’s full course and content capabilities, as well as combine traditional course curriculum with safe, high quality digital content from ePals.

“Working with ePals gives us the opportunity to bring powerful learning management technology to a broader market of K-12 school districts in a social, policy-managed environment,” said Curt Allen, CEO of Agilix. “By combining ePals’ market leading safe communication and collaboration solutions with BrainHoney LMS tools, this partnership will equip schools with end-to-end capabilities to build 21st century classrooms.”
