Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

Edvance360, a leading provider of eLearning services and software solutions, announced that Ohio Christian University left Blackboard™ to join the growing Edvance360 LMS-SN community of users.

“There were several key factors that influenced our decision to seek out a new LMS. Primarily, we were seeking an intuitive system that provided faculty and students with a learning environment that facilitated learning as opposed to creating a barrier to learning. Edvance360 provides an easy to use and intuitive user interface. We also sought to create a sense of community within the LMS. Edvance360 provides the features we need to assist in building community. Other factors included integration with our Student Information System, affordability, and the ability to migrate existing courses into Edvance360. Edvance360 made it possible for us to accomplish these objectives. Edvance360 has been praised by our students and faculty as a big step forward.”
