Comcourse Announces Learning Bridge™, The Next Generation, Low-Cost LMS Alternative

Comcourse has developed a next generation Learning Management System (LMS) that has greater functionality and usability at a fraction of the current LMS cost

Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2005 -- Comcourse Corporation announced today that it is introducing The Comcourse Learning Bridge™, the next-generation hosted Learning Management System. The program is being offered as an alternative to the older and more expensive LMS programs currently being employed by schools and colleges.

James Chellis, CEO, said “We have spent two years developing a next-generation fully-hosted LMS, testing and proving it." He added, “We saw that schools and universities had very limited choices, and all of them were much too expensive. The cost for a fully hosted LMS does not need to be $60 to $100 per enrollment. Newer technologies have matured to a point where they are now even more effective and can reflect a much lower price. Yet most schools are still using the old software at the old prices. We wanted to develop a more attractive alternative."

Matthew Sheltz, Comcourse CTO said, “We can help schools reduce their LMS costs by 50% or more. Those savings go right to the bottom line. The LMS is robust enough to scale to an enterprise level, and takes advantage of one of the best datacenters in the world. In 2004, we had 99.999% uptime. That's less than five minutes offline all year.” Mr. Sheltz added “The Learning Bridge™ is relatively quick and easy for our developers to customize. So we can do it at no cost. We often show customers a functional revision within a few working days after they tell us what they want."

The Comcourse Learning Bridge™ is available today. For schools which currently use an old LMS, Comcourse will migrate the students and setup the courses at no charge.
