Ucroo, Colorado State University-Global Campus Partner to Enhance Online Peer-to-Peer Student Engagement

Ucroo Incorporated and Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSU-Global) today announced the launch of a new partnership. Beginning in January 2018, CSU-Global - the premier provider of innovative, higher learning opportunities for nontraditional students in Colorado and beyond - will implement Ucroo's web and mobile platform to increase connection, collaboration and communication among its student cohort. This partnership is a major step in Ucroo's, an Australian-based company, U.S. expansion.

Ucroo puts each student at the center of their university community - intelligently connecting users with relevant people, announcements and events. The platform makes it easier for students to connect and interact with their university community and integrates with existing systems to keep them updated on the things critical to success.

James McCubbin, chief executive officer of Ucroo, said, "CSU-Global has an exceptional reputation in online course delivery. At Ucroo our goal is to help universities all over the world create a contemporary digital experience for their students. This partnership with CSU-Global, a leading provider of online education, is a clear indication that our platform is central to a quality experience for online students. Of course, having just opened our first U.S. office in Denver, we are particularly excited to be partnering with a local education provider with a global outlook."

Maria Jump, assistant vice president of Student Services at CSU-Global, said, "Ucroo's technology will enrich the online student experience at CSU-Global by facilitating collaborations and partnerships across our digital campus. We believe that nurturing a vibrant online student community will positively impact student success at CSU-Global."

Colorado State University-Global Campus provides academically authoritative, career-focused degree and certificate programs in an adaptive environment beyond traditional higher education models.
