With a mission to “provide a learning-centric environment through classroom and distance learning to prepare students from diverse backgrounds,” it is imperative that Delgado provide its students with the best and most accessible opportunities for classroom engagement and coursework, regardless of the type of learning.

Amanda Rosenzweig, LMS administrator and eLearning trainer at Delgado, as well as chair and professor of biology, was looking for ways to improve and better fulfill the institution’s aforementioned mission.

Rosenzweig said, “Although I’m new to ActiveClass, I’ve seen a huge impact on the students at the school. ActiveClass provides student engagement in a familiar format. The social media feel allows students and teachers to contribute content and create communities.”

ActiveClass’ intuitive approach to engaging students through social media-like tools right within the LMS helps students across the country feel more connected by providing key features across all learning modes that make sense for students and are actually used by teachers and be accepted.

In addition to the social nature of ActiveClass, Rosenzweig also stated, “The instructor can facilitate and deliver learning in an environment that promotes learning through student immersion. Additionally, the discussion board’s attribution features allow for easy grading using standards such as word count, comment count, and plagiarism detection.”

Nate Hurst, CEO and co-founder of ActiveClass, stated, “We are thrilled to be working with Amanda and the entire Delgado community. As we continue to develop and invest in our product, people like Amanda are instrumental in helping us shape what student engagement can and will look like in the near future.”
