Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI) used its first appearance at the annual International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to launch Thuze, the company’s online learning platform.
Thuze is Bridgepoint Education’s innovative cloud-based digital learning platform designed to encourage student interaction and collaboration across an expansive selection of devices. In January 2012, Thuze was launched as a pilot program with prominent publishers in higher education such as Jones & Bartlett Learning, McGraw-Hill Education and Pearson As American educators strive to reach alternative and non-traditional students, Bridgepoint is building a path they can follow.
“We’re pleased we could introduce Thuze at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show,” stated Andrew Clark, chief executive officer of Bridgepoint Education. “The CES audience understood and appreciated the potential impact of this cloud-based, collaborative learning software platform.”
Clark’s participation in the “Innovation in Higher Education: Disruptive or Destructive?” panel served to highlight the company’s contributions to upcoming new education models.
An estimated 3,100 tech and electronics visionaries, manufacturers and retail companies were on display at CES this year, the most ever. Bridgepoint joined the growing group of educational innovators that comprise the show’s HigherEdTECH contingent, helping to boost the profile of contemporary learning technology and coming changes in higher education.
