Fidelis Geared to Offer Cohesive Educational Experience for Students via Its Enterprise SaaS Platform

Fidelis, a provider of tools that can deliver a well-integrated and comprehensive learning platform for all types of learning communities, including universities, companies, community colleges, military units, high schools, government and non-government organizations, launched its enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) platform for student-centered learning.

"Integration is the key. Most teaching and learning organizations want to build more student-centered support systems for learning and to implement a badging system, but they are moving slowly because integrating the solutions is difficult. Our single platform brings together the necessary tools, so any learning community can offer high-quality, blended learning programs to its members," Gunnar Counselman, co-founder and chief executive officer of Fidelis said in a statement.

Fidelis technology is noted to offer a cohesive educational experience that is based on the personal goals and objectives set by individual students. It covers a 360-degree view of learning, offering online course delivery at its core and combining it with traditional coursework, mentorship, coaching, micro-credentialing through digital badges, and job placement.

"We have spent nearly two years laying the technical ground work and testing the platform. After conducting pilots with schools like UCLA, Arizona State University, University of Texas, and University of Florida, our focus shifted from a partnership model to a licensing platform that can be made available to all students," added Counselman.

The Fidelis enterprise SaaS platform's design is driven by a mission to help students and employees to get the most value possible from their education and training.

Founded in 2011, Fidelis develops innovative software platform for students, faculty and staff to interact in meaningful ways outside the classroom.

Recently, the American Public Education, parent company of online learning provider American Public University System, which operates through American Military University and American Public University, made a $4 million minority investment in Fidelis Education.
