Kitchener, Canada, June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The Opportunities Industrialization Center of Oklahoma County, Inc. (OIC) — which has provided education and training to adults for more than 50 years — has chosen Brightspace as its first Learning Management System (LMS).

The organization was looking for an LMS that had the potential to reach everyone — particularly people who live in areas where there may be no options for a quality instructor-led program.

“As we looked out over the landscape of the growing population of adults who need a high school diploma, we wanted to create a virtual online high school equivalency program — which led us to create OIC's Diploma Prep 24/7 course,” said DesJean Jones, Executive Director, OIC. “D2L/Brightspace offered the type of customer service and hands-on assistance we knew we would need to establish that curriculum.”

More information concerning enrollment in OIC’s Diploma Prep 24/7 and other courses can be found at https://oicokc.org.

  • OIC has been serving Oklahoma County since 1966 and maintains one of the most efficient programs in the state. 
  • Oklahoma’s population is 3.8 million, with 400,000 adults who need a high school equivalency diploma.
