Maryland Center for History and Culture
Learn how the Maryland Center for History and Culture (formerly the Maryland Historical Society), partnered with CourseArc to build upon its vision and mission to be known for more than a place of historic preservation, but also a place of discovery and learning. Read more to learn how their partnership with CourseArc helped them become an important resource and central hub for immersive historical education.
“CourseArc was already established and had the ability to integrate our program. Everyone on the team was very supportive with what we were trying to do with our product. Very early on, working with a school system, the CEO, Katie Egan, made a personal appearance to help figure out the integration process. That spoke volumes for us.”
The Erickson School, UMBC
The Erickson School at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) educates leaders how to innovate, transform, and provide solutions for the rapidly changing and diverse population. Erickson had declining enrollment and wanted to move ten of their graduate courses online to try and expand their market. They initially planned to outsource the development of the content but instead chose to use CourseArc. They saved approximately $350,000 and were able to rapidly produce high-quality content in a short amount of time using CourseArc.
Learn how the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF), the education and training leaders in crisis intervention and disaster behavioral health services, used CourseArc to move their training online. ICISF created their first online training course in 2015 to try to expand their reach worldwide. In just two short years, they have increased their enrollments by 250% and revenue by 544%! More importantly, they have expanded their reach to train different groups in 17 countries around the world, such as local police and fire departments, Marshals, the military, and park service personnel.
Our expectation was that the interest and success of these online programs would create enough revenue that we could reinvest it to create more online courses, or, at the very least, sustain our operation. Absolutely that has been the case!
