Sagence Opinion Corner

Washington, DC – April 16, 2018 -- Thomas Edison State University (TESU) has selected Sagence Learning platform and services to help them create, launch and deliver the institution’s first competency-based degree program. This program will allow students who have already earned credits towards an AA degree to complete the degree and pursue a Bachelors degree or specialized program leading to a desired job and career.

Developed in direct alignment with New Jersey residents' needs, the competency-based program awards college credit based on a student’s mastery of skills, or “competencies,” rather than time spent in the classroom.

About TESU

Thomas Edison State University provides flexible, high-quality, collegiate learning opportunities for self-directed adults. Established by the State of New Jersey and chartered by the New Jersey Board of Higher Education in 1972, the University was founded for the purpose of providing diverse and alternative methods of achieving a collegiate education of the highest quality for mature adults.  TESU is one of New Jersey's senior public institutions of higher learning, regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

About Sagence Learning, Inc.

An educational technology company founded in 2014, Sagence Learning partners with institutions to help them implement transformational education initiatives through competency-based education and other programs targeted at non traditional students seeking opportunity through post-secondary education.

The Sagence Learning platform is the first enterprise level learning platform built with the student at the center, rather then the course or the institution. We provide maximum flexibility to the student learner while insuring the program and faculty have tools and processes to insure maximum support at exactly the time the student needs it - this was not easy to do. Innovative colleges and universities who recognize they must offer new kinds of programs select Sagence Learning as their technology partner.
