DALLAS, Texas (Aug. 23, 2021)—Academic Partnerships (AP), a leading online facilitator for affordable higher education, announced today that it has acquired Coursetune Inc., a leading ed-tech provider of curriculum mapping software. AP’s acquisition of Coursetune was driven by the companies’ shared goals to provide best-in-class curriculum design capabilities for faculty, increase collaboration and, most importantly, improve student outcomes.
“This acquisition builds on the combined strengths of both AP and Coursetune and furthers our ability to meet the increasingly diverse and complex needs of our university partners and their faculty by providing a powerful software solution that helps institutions demonstrate high-quality outcomes and workforce alignment in their online offerings,” said Rob Ganji, Academic Partnerships CEO. “Most importantly, Coursetune has a strong commitment to increasing quality learning experiences with equity and access for students everywhere. They are a natural extension of AP’s mission to expand access to top quality, affordable and workforce relevant education, especially for students who are working adults like nurses and teachers. We look forward to integrating Coursetune’s dynamic visualization software into the support services for our partners, almost all of whom are regional public universities.”
High-quality online education is becoming a necessary part of universities’ degree offerings. Coursetune’s software helps universities and faculty demonstrate that courses and programs are mapped appropriately to the institution’s overarching workforce, regulatory and programmatic goals. Doing so, helps faculty and program leadership alike showcase at-a-glance embedded skills and competencies that support strengthened outcomes for students and educators.
“We are thrilled to join the AP family, which shares Coursetune’s vision across future products, services and support. We will continue to scale and accelerate our current product roadmap, and now we willhave access to even more support and resources that will benefit educators and their students. We built Coursetune specifically to solve complex problems, and AP focuses on student populations that can truly benefit from these solutions. It takes all of us working together to comprehensively help support increased access to affordable, top quality education,” said Dr. Maria Andersen, Coursetune CEO.
Working together, Academic Partnerships and Coursetune will better be able to fulfill their common mission. Coursetune will continue to grow as a distinct brand with a dedicated team. Its software will remain available to customers on a stand-alone basis, and over the coming months, the companies will examine ways their customers can benefit from the others’ offerings.
