We usually think about a university implementing an LMS for their primary educational delivery platform. However, as recently announced by American Sentinel University in Aurora, CO, Moodle’s diversity can also be the foundation of a high quality career center site.
For me, the best part about this implementation is that it supports the ultimate mission of the vast majority of learning institutions – making sure that their students are able to begin or further their career in their chosen field. It is also a great example of the power of the LMS to benefit the entire student lifecycle at an institution.
This move makes sense for American Sentinel as an online degree provider with a technically narrow offering across the Healthcare profession (Nursing and Management) because their typical student comes to them with a clear idea of the field they want to enter (or further their career in); ensuring these students have easy access to the jobs on the street is a fantastic value add.
