New Mexico State University Selects SoftChalk Cloud for Content Authoring and DevelopmentPosted July 10, 2012 in News, Press Releases
La Cruces, New Mexico — July 10, 2012 — New Mexico State University today announced that it is adopting SoftChalk Cloud to enhance their content authoring and development capabilities. SoftChalk Cloud is the latest content authoring and repository product from award-winning e-learning software provider SoftChalk, LLC.
NMSU has used SoftChalk content authoring products since 2009 to enhance blended and online courses, fostering an innovative, learner-centered approach to course design. Their Online Course Improvement Team made the decision to move to SoftChalk Cloud because working in the cloud enables users to quickly access their content, revise their SoftChalk learning objects and easily share their work.
SoftChalk Cloud retains all of the features and functions they currently enjoy, particularly dynamic interoperability and the ability to quickly and efficiently organize text and multimedia in a visually appealing way. Plus, SoftChalk Cloud is easily compatible with almost any LMS, including Canvas, which NMSU recently migrated to.
NMSU and SoftChalk have a shared interest in technology that is convenient, powerful and easy to integrate with other products and platforms. With the move to the cloud, SoftChalk is adapting to better meet NMSU’s complex needs and the needs of other institutions that are leading the way in education technology adoption.
SoftChalk Cloud was designed to be the world’s first complete, educator-friendly content authoring platform in the cloud. This comprehensive product allows educators to create content in their browsers, seamlessly share it with their colleagues and retain their content even if their school switches to a new LMS.
