Arizona State University Selects GoingOn to Help Transform Student Engagement & Enrich Online Academic Life

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

GoingOn Networks, Inc. announced today that Arizona State University (ASU) has selected the GoingOn Academic Engagement Network to help foster new levels of engagement and collaboration across its campuses. The GoingOn platform provides ASU with an integrated solution for deploying an academic social network where students, faculty and administrators can more easily collaborate and share information outside the confines of their online courses. ASU plans to first implement GoingOn to online students in the College of Nursing and Health Innovation and online master’s level students at ASU’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. The GoingOn platform is also being utilized to enhance participation and collaborations across several faculty and staff committees.

“Arizona State has been consistently recognized as the leader in delivering the most modern and complete online learning experience. It is truly an honor to be working with them,” said Jon Corshen, CEO of GoingOn Networks. “Today’s modern stream-based technologies make it faster and easier than ever to deliver intelligent information and provide rich online collaboration on a massive scale and a much smaller price. By implementing GoingOn, ASU is enabling students and faculty to interact outside the confines of their course and to share information and activities that are typically lost in a maze of portals and back-end systems. The result is a more engaged student body that experiences a more fulfilling and complete academic life. ”
