Edmentum To Add 70 Career and Technical Ed Courses for 2015 School Year

Edmentum, a provider of online courses, will release more than 70 career and technical education (CTE) courses for the 2015-16 school year.

Featuring learning paths in arts, AV technology, communications, business management and administration, health science and IT, the courses "will be designed for use on mobile devices with engaging, real-world content and multimedia that ties realistic scenarios into each lesson," according to a news release. "The courses will be available through Plato Courseware's online courses and EdOptions Academy, a fully accredited virtual school solution."

"The success of introducing students to career options through CTE is evident, and our new courses offer even more options for students to explore," said Eric Swanson, group product manager at Edmentum, in a prepared statement. "By almost doubling our CTE offerings, students will have even more options to connect with different careers through the classroom."

In addition, the company has announced that all of its existing courses will be updated with mobile optimization and Common Core alignment by the 2015 school year.
