Timecruiser Chosen as Campus-Wide eLearning Solution

Westchester College to help students launch and jumpstart careers

Timecruiser Computing Corporation, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) partner to the higher education community, today announced that The College of Westchester (CW) has selected Timecruiser's Solution Suite -- CampusCruiser(TM) and CourseCruiser(TM) LMS -- as its campus-wide academic portal and Learning Management System. Timecruiser's Solutions were chosen from a number of competitors for their attractive cost benefit ratio and level of support and flexibility.

As a college committed to preparing an academically and culturally diverse student body for the workforce, The College of Westchester needed an academic portal and LMS that could support its career-focused educational model and adapt to the school's needs as it grows -- a steady 20% for the last several years. Timecruiser's reasonably priced SaaS portal and LMS system will help the college keep its tuition at an affordable level -- critical to today's economically challenged workforce.

CampusCruiser and CourseCruiser were chosen to replace the current systems after an extensive review process and intensive testing. "We couldn't be more pleased with our decision to partner with Timecruiser. CampusCruiser will give us integration with our ERP system, communities and collaboration tools, such as student profiles & clubs, professional committees, Cruiser Café Social Network, blogs, and email and calendaring solutions," said Kelly Walsh, CIO, The College of Westchester. "When all of our online, hybrid, and technology-enhanced face to face courses are transitioned to CourseCruiser LMS, we will be able to provide a seamless user experience, encouraging collaboration among instructors, students, committees, and teams."

"Timecruiser welcomes The College of Westchester to the Timecruiser community," said Allen Wang, president and CEO, Timecruiser. "Making the decision to switch to a new learning system is never easy. We look forward to partnering with CW and making their transition to CampusCruiser and CourseCruiser smooth and successful."

Timecruiser's Solution Suite has been named the Best Postsecondary Enterprise Solution by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards in both 2008 and 2009. The CODiE Awards are among the most prestigious in the software industry, showcasing the finest software and digital content products and services across a wide variety of categories.
