Offering online driver’s education in eight states
Edgenuity, a leading provider of online curriculum and instructional services for the K-12 market, has announced a new partnership with DriversEd.com, the #1 online driving school. Edgenuity customers in eight states will have access to interactive online courses designed to teach students relevant local driving laws, pass their permit exams and get onto the road with confidence.
Through this partnership, Edgenuity is excited to offer schools and districts access to:
· State-approved, online educational resources for beginning drivers
· High-tech, high-quality courses available 24/7
· An interactive driver’s education experience that incorporates streaming video, 3-D case studies and dynamic learning activities
DriversEd.com’s courses create an immersive learning environment that emphasizes problem solving through on-the-road scenarios and visually supported interactive narrative elements. Its state-specific courses incorporate multimedia and a high degree of interactivity to engage students beyond a traditional lecture.
“At Edgenuity, we are continually looking for ways to offer students engaging learning solutions that will prepare them for life outside the classroom,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “Driving is an important milestone and opens a doorway to both freedom and heightened responsibility. By making driver’s education available through our platform, we are proud to bring important resources to students – when and wherever they are learning – that will prepare them to become confident, accredited and well-informed drivers.”
DriversEd.com is the only driving school in the country that is both approved by the Road Safety Educators’ Association and accredited by the Driving School Association of the Americas. Since launching in 1997, DriversEd.com has trained more than 13 million drivers across the U.S.
“With today’s generation of drivers consisting of largely digital-first learners, this opportunity is particularly exciting and timely. This new partnership will create safer roads and smarter drivers across these eight states,” said Darren Kuhn, Marketing Leader at DriversEd.com. “With a mission to provide our students with the most effective driver safety solutions on the market, DriversEd.com strives to do much more than just help people pass a test – we prepare drivers for a lifetime of safe and confident driving.”
The new driver’s education courses will be available beginning February 1 to Edgenuity customers in California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas. Educators interested learning more can visit Edgenuity.com.
