EdisonLearning Highlights Long-term Partnership with Capital Area Online Learning Association (CAOLA)

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – March 28, 2023 - EdisonLearning, a longtime innovator in public education and leading provider of digital learning solutions for students in grades K -12, is highlighting its productive, more than decade long partnership, with the Pennsylvania-based Capital Area Online Learning Association, at this week’s CAOLACon event at the Kalahari Resort in Pocono Manor, PA.

CAOLA is Pennsylvania’s largest online learning consortium, educating more than 40,000 students a year in more than 150 school districts throughout 11 Pennsylvania Intermediate Units.

EdisonLearning has had a close working relationship with the Capital Area Intermediate Unit (CAIU) and its online program since the launch of its initial online program in 2009. 

Thom Jackson, President & CEO of EdisonLearning stated, “As CAOLA has grown in their number of students and products and services offered, it continues to advance its role as a revolutionary model in online education.  And as a partner since the beginning, EdisonLearning is proud to be involved in these efforts.”

The majority of CAOLA’s course enrollments, through EdisonLearning eCourses, are supported by EdisonLearning’s certified teachers. These experienced instructors provide support to their students by grading and providing effective feedback, providing academic interventions and other asynchronous remediation.

EdisonLearning also provides regular customer success support and product training for CAOLA and its partners. 

Each EdisonLearning eCourse has been developed by highly qualified instructional designers and teachers utilizing best practices fostered over a decade of online learning experience and 20 years of experience driving achievement in schools. 

In addition to serving as a key sponsor of CAOLACon, eight members of EdisonLearning’s Instructional team will conduct industry-specific professional development sessions focused on the current K-12 online learning environment, including the following topics:

  • Less is More: Focusing on the Strategies that Work, and Removing the Ones That Don't
