As part of its strategic plan, Maryville University is committed to both the creation of an active learning ecosystem and transformational innovation both on campus and online. To meet the challenge, the campus technology teams wanted a partner who shared their passion for learning and problem solving. Recognizing faculty collaboration would be a key to success, Maryville selected eLumin to take faculty ideas and transform them into flexible and virtual learning environments.
Transformational innovation requires a commitment to change on a major scale. Maryville faculty and staff were consulted and were able to define learning objectives, requirements, and a vision of what they wanted. How to translate those needs into a solution was much harder to define as some of the upfront challenges included:
eLumin first embarked on a mission to determine what solutions would be best for Maryville to meet each program’s unique requirements. eLumin was able to focus resources to quickly convert physical labs to virtual labs, expand classroom learning to take advantage the diversity of devices used by students and to help transition 50% of the campus desktops to virtual desktops.
