  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) September 24, 2010 - ClassLink, the leading provider of virtualization and managed learning solutions for K12 school systems, welcomes Bruce Wilcox as its new VP of Blended Learning. Wilcox will spearhead ClassLink's "LaunchPad" instructional solution. LaunchPad is the centralized point of access where teachers and students login to see a customized, dynamic desktop from which all applications can be easily accessed from any computing device in the school, community or home.

    "Bruce provides our organization depth in the emerging mobile learning arena," said Berj Akian, CEO, "along with considerable expertise in vendor and client relations."

    "I am very pleased to have joined this progressive company and look forward to being a part of the continued technology evolution in education," said Wilcox. "LaunchPad is an essential tool in the design of technology enhanced learning experiences for students. With the emergence of myriad low cost computing solutions for schools which vary from netbooks to laptops, to tablets, to smartphones, LaunchPad provides an effective means for this robust and heterogeneous environment to be managed, and thus tailored, to the core mission of schooling - that of teaching and learning."

    Added CEO Akian "The movement to embrace student-owned technology is an inevitable migration that our school clients will have to address. Bruce's experience, both in defining technology standards for student devices and his pioneering work in mobile learning ensures that LaunchPad will reflect school requirements and, at the same time, accommodate the Bring Your Own Computer (BYOC) evolution."

    Prior to ClassLink Wilcox was Founder and CEO of Aprender (a mobile learning services provider), strategic advisor to Digital Millennial Consulting (leading provider of mobile learning solutions for K12 schools), and Board member for the Education Division of the Software and Information Industry Association. Wilcox was founding CEO of SNS Project Inkwell where he spearheaded the formation of a broad public/private consortium of organizations focused on implementing one-to-one learning at scale through the development of functional specifications and technical standards. This work played an important role in creating interest and standards for producing low-cost, rugged computing appliances for K12 learners.

    Prior to running Inkwell, Mr. Wilcox was Vice President of eBusiness for Reed Elsevier's Harcourt Education Group, a leading publisher of K12 print-based instructional materials, New Media Director for Simon & Schuster (later Pearson Education) and pioneer in the satellite data broadcasting industry. Mr. Wilcox's career spans early involvement in the development and sales of computer-based instructional programs for elementary and secondary education, diagnostic/prescriptive programs for adult learners in need of basic skills enhancement, startup and founder roles in education technology companies along with senior management roles within the instructional materials (textbook) industry.

    Mr. Wilcox lives in New Jersey with his wife of 20 years, has two children enrolled in public schools, and is active as volunteer and advocate for instructional innovation in American education system(s).
