eCornell partners with Destiny Solutions to further accelerate growth and streamline operations

August 22nd, 2012

New software platform provides business scalability and operational best practices to further drive growth in global markets.

A top online continuing education provider, eCornell delivers online professional and executive development programs to over 50,000 students worldwide in more than 200 countries.  By partnering with Destiny Solutions, eCornell will transition from its homegrown enterprise system onto Destiny One, allowing the company to focus on the implementation of a strategic expansion plan, including curriculum development and corporate engagement.

“eCornell’s unique approach to eLearning requires sophisticated software to administer students and manage programs throughout the customer lifecycle,” said Rob Kingyens, Chief Technology Officer of eCornell.  “By shifting away from our homegrown system and onto the Destiny One platform, we are able to focus our technology efforts on new product development and solutions that enhance the learning experience and engagement with our global customer base.”

eCornell eLearning  combines the most effective elements of a world-class, Ivy League classroom with the flexibility of an online learning environment.  eCornell courses—self-paced and 100 percent online—are “instructor-facilitated” and “cohort centric” helping guide participants in each course through challenging, real-world exercises with practical on-the-job application.  Destiny One will allow staff to manage the scheduling and capacity of courses while providing students with rich, contextual portals and the tools to track their progress to certificate completion.

Destiny One will also support and streamline eCornell’s direct and online sales to both retail and corporate customers, which occur locally and through a network of international resellers. Furthermore, the solution will fully integrate with the organization’s financial, customer relationship, and learning management systems.

“eCornell is an award-winning leader in online professional certificates in a wide variety of business disciplines,” said Shaul Kuper, President and CEO of Destiny Solutions.  “Destiny One will enable eCornell to reimagine its market potential and provide organizational agility to further accelerate growth and streamline operations.”
