Boston College Selects Noodle Partners to Build Online Master's Programs for the Lynch School of Education

New approach to online program management will reduce cost and add flexibility, control and transparency

BOSTON, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Noodle Partners, the nation's fastest-growing online higher education provider, today announced a partnership with Boston College's Lynch School of Education (LSOE) to offer master's programs in Curriculum and Instruction, and Educational Leadership, for working professionals.

"The Lynch School of Education is one of the nation's leading schools of education, and we are delighted to be working with their faculty to help them meet their institutional goals and academic mission," said John Katzman, CEO of Noodle Partners.

A reimagining of the traditional online program management (OPM) model, Noodle Partners leverages pre-vetted providers and the internal strengths of university partners to create successful online programs. Bringing external expertise in key areas such as digital marketing, student recruitment, instructional design, and student support, Noodle Partners lowers costs while providing best-in-class service and transparency.

During 2018-19, LSOE will welcome working professionals to its two online master's programs. The Curriculum and Instruction program prepares educators to re-conceptualize what they teach, how they teach, and where teaching and learning can occur, while the Educational Leadership program is committed to preparing aspiring educational leaders to shape the learning culture and organizational structures in an array of settings.

"We're excited to work with Noodle Partners," said Stanton Wortham, Dean of the Lynch School of Education. "They're flexible, innovative, cost-effective and transparent, and they will make a great partner. Boston College and the Lynch School anticipate that our new online programs in education will allow us to reach broader audiences with our distinctive blend of academic excellence and care for students' holistic development."

Unlike other online program providers, Noodle Partners does not take a share of student tuition or lock schools into long, multi-year contracts that can consume 70 percent of program resources for decades.

"Noodle is now building out 20 degree programs with some of the best universities in the world, and the programs are scaling well," said Katzman. "As we continue to perfect our model, there will be a point this year that no reasonable provost or CFO will allow his or her university to sign a decade-long agreement handing tens of thousands from each student to the stockholders of a traditional OPM."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
