Iowa Valley Partners with MindEdge to Offer Online Courses and Certificates

Online learning has never been more popular than it is today. Online curriculum is in demand, and Iowa Valley Business and Community Solutions is excited to partner with a new curriculum provider, MindEdge. Iowa Valley has collaborated with MindEdge to offer the very latest in online courses and certificate programs.  MindEdge was founded in 1998 by Harvard and MIT educators and continues to be an innovative leader in the rapidly changing landscape of online education by developing high-content online courses and e-learning solutions for professionals in higher education, associations, nonprofits, and businesses, as well as individuals seeking to enhance their credentials.

MindEdge courses and certificates offer diverse content delivery methods such as video, interactive exercises, learner assessments, and simulation technology that best suits individual learning styles.  In addition, all courses and certificates are mobile-enabled, meaning learners have the option to access information via a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Flexibility is also the hallmark of MindEdge online classes—they are available at any time, allowing learners to study at their own pace and on their own schedule.

A Massachusetts-based company, MindEdge has been working to improve the way the world learns since 1998. They provide online education and training solutions to colleges and universities throughout the United States. Iowa Valley is the first partnership for MindEdge in Iowa. MindEdge enjoys a student satisfaction rate of greater than 95 percent.

“We are so excited to partner with MindEdge,” said Jon Nunez, Director of Programming and Operations for Iowa Valley Business and Community Solutions. “Their depth of on-demand coursework is incredible.”

Unlike many course providers, MindEdge courses are provided on-demand so students can take classes when they fit in with their busy schedules. This is especially important for students who juggle full-time employment and family responsibilities. Courses are also affordable on almost any budget, with many courses offered at a price point under $100.

“The flexibility that MindEdge offers students is really attractive,” said Julie Thomas, Community and Workforce Education Coordinator. “We are also really impressed by the number of subject areas offered. If a student is looking for a particular course, they can reach out to us if they aren’t able to find a course that suits their individual learning needs.”

Iowa Valley has curated a list of courses offered based on those most requested in our region. However, they have access to additional course materials if a student is looking for something that is not on the website.
