LoudCloud Systems worked closely with Grand Canyon University to map and configure a next generation learning management system offering a personalized learning environment to meet the institution's unique needs.  In less than a year, LoudCloud has successfully migrated all of Grand Canyon University's online students onto the new LoudCloud Learning Ecosystem.  The LoudCloud Learning Ecosystem incorporates mobility, social and collaborative technologies, adaptive learning and predictive analytics.

"We are delighted to announce the successful implementation of  LoudCloud at Grand Canyon University," said Manoj Kutty, CEO LoudCloud Systems. "In less than one year, we migrated over 44,000 students, faculty and over 750 online courses from Blackboard onto the LoudCloud Learning Ecosystem. More importantly, we have succeeded in deploying a completely new personalized teaching and learning system offering advanced analytics and workflow innovations.  LoudCloud's technologies are designed to improve performance, productivity and engagement of students and teachers."

LoudCloud and Grand Canyon are working together to develop and implement a sophisticated and actionable analytics system to provide real-time learning intelligence for students, teachers and program administrators. LoudCloud CEO Manoj Kutty will be speaking at this year's annual EDUCAUSE Conference in Denver.  He will be joined by Joe Mildenhall, CIO at Grand Canyon University, who will share a case study of how LoudAnalytics is being implemented at Grand Canyon University.

"It is vital that we continue to invest in leading technologies that enhance the quality of education for our students," said Brian Mueller, GCU CEO. "The LoudCloud Learning Ecosystem is flexible and engaging, and it gives our students a highly personalized learning experience. LoudAnalytics is tremendously powerful and will help our teachers and students excel at their work."

LoudCloud's intelligent Learning Ecosystem captures and statistically analyzes over 190 variables from student demographics, course engagement and assessment data to provide real-time profiles and patterns of best practice – instructional strategies, content preference, and teaching styles. The resultant data stream allows teachers to understand how students are learning, and provides them with the necessary tools to make the best interventions. Coupled with its modular component design allowing schools and institutions to "pick and choose" their own individual eco-system, the LoudCloud Learning Ecosystem creates a personal learning environment to provide better outcomes for each learner.
