By Wendy Flint, PhD, MBA, Augusoft
One of the highlights of my first week at Augusoft was discovering Pearson products integrated on the Lumens® platform. Using an online Pearson product to teach an online English Composition class for a college, I was drawn to a Pearson booth at a higher education conference. Instead of textbooks on display, there were excellently written workforce readiness workbooks. I was pleased to discover that these workbooks were being converted into much needed E-learning courses. Many of today’s students in my classes – both career technical education and for-credit – are unprepared for the 21st century workplace. I had the privilege of learning these skills in training programs and on the job at Hewlett-Packard and have integrated the concepts in my classes ever since. An HR manager shared with me, “I don’t care about 4.0 GPAs. I need people who can work in teams, be flexible and creative, solve problems and think!” This is a product, integrated on the Lumens platform, that our 200+ and growing customers should be thrilled to offer to their enrollees.
