Edmentum, a leading provider of online and mobile learning solutions, announces new online course approvals from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) under the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) program for the 2016–17 school year. This latest approval now makes Edmentum the leader in online course approvals in North Carolina with 43 full-semester courses approved. These courses cover a broad range of subject areas from Edmentum’s comprehensive collection, including core curriculum, world language, career and technical education, and courses for use with the Advanced Placement® exams.

“We’re honored to receive these additional course approvals for the 2016–17 school year,” said Dr. Shannan LaMalfa, senior product manager, Edmentum Courseware. “This approval continues to emphasize the strong partnership that we’ve had with the NCVPS to ensure that we’re continually evolving our curricula to meet the needs of today’s learners in North Carolina.”

The NCVPS approval recognizes Edmentum's alignment to curriculum content standards that are set forth by the NCDPI, and all of the courses meet the recognized quality assurance standards for e-learning courses.
