Modern Campus Acquires Presence, Leading Campus Engagement and Learning Platform
Modern Campus, a modern learner engagement platform, just announced the acquisition of Presence, an engagement and learning platform for higher education institutions. This acquisition was made in order to personalize the student experience with a ‘learner to earner’ goal while extending Modern Campus’ reach to 1,400 colleges and universities across North America.
“Learner engagement means everything to modern higher education institutions – because highly engaged learners graduate on time and are far more likely to view their post-secondary education as a lifelong partnership versus merely a two- or four-year transactional relationship,” said Brian Kibby, chief executive officer of Modern Campus. “Not only does Presence offer the best student engagement platform, they’re also equally obsessed with customer success […].”
Presence is highly complimentary to Modern Campus as well as the newly acquired DIGARC products. DIGARC, a single source for curriculum data across campuses, with solutions covering catalog management, curriculum design, student registration, section scheduling, and student pathways was very recently acquired by Modern Campus (Business Wire).
Modern Campus seems to be quite focused on its vision to revolutionize the student experience having also recently acquired nuCloud, a customizable interactive campus maps and virtual tour solutions for colleges and universities, this past March (Cision PRWeb).
With the merger of Modern Campus with Destiny Solutions (a student management software) earlier this year, the acquisition of Presence is the fourth acquisition/merger in as many months.
“This acquisition [of Presence] is yet another example of how Modern Campus is investing in innovation to help its customers fulfill their mission, and we’re proud to add fuel for Modern Campus’s customer obsession,” said Stephen Rice, principal at The Riverside Company, the equity partner for Modern Campus.
