Partnership expands iCohere's eLearning design and development services for the industry's only Unified Learning System

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. and WASHINGTON, D.C. – JANUARY 20, 2015 – iCohere, a global provider of cloud-based learning management and professional development solutions, announces a cooperative partnership with Dr. Amanda Batson and ADB Partners, LLC – Education on Demand. Through collaboration with ADB Partners, iCohere's clients will now benefit from expertise in education architecture, strategic design and program development.

"Quality eLearning must be built on a strong yet flexible foundation. The ideal foundation provides multiple delivery options, seamless infrastructure for hosting organizations, top-drawer support, and especially transparent experiences for learners," said Dr. Amanda Batson. "Unified Learning by iCohere fills this bill and more. With this foundation, dynamic, transformative eLearning can be designed and delivered across platforms. ADB Partners is thrilled to join with iCohere and their clients – to take eLearning to new levels."

As more organizations branch into eLearning, this partnership will enable iCohere's clients to capitalize on the power of eLearning by providing access to:

  • Educational webinars and training, highlighting development and delivery of eLearning best practices and principles.
  • Complimentary consultation including an eLearning Strategy Scan to help create an eLearning business and curriculum outline.
  • ELearning Design and Implementation Services including consultation for developing dynamic hybrid programs with a blend of face-to-face and virtual experiences.

These strategic eLearning design and development services are especially important now that learners can access the world of eLearning through advanced technologies, including smartphones and tablets.

"Learners expect a learning experience that provides high quality and interactive instruction with convenience and flexibility, but not all organizations are prepared to face these newer eLearning expectations," explains Pascal Kaplan, CEO of iCohere. "So we're delighted that this partnership with ADB Partners will provide enhanced curriculum strategy, instructional design, and course development project management services to our existing clients as well as new clients."
