Six Red Marbles Names Kelvin Bentley, PhD, as Vice President of Learning Strategy
Dec 17, 2019
BOSTON, Massachusetts—Six Red Marbles (SRM) today announced that it has named Kelvin Bentley, PhD, as the company’s new Vice President of Learning Strategy.
“There are many important decisions that institutions need to make when starting and growing their online initiatives—decisions that will impact the institution for many years,” says David Goodman, CEO and President of Six Red Marbles. “Not all colleges and universities fit well into a standard OPM model; hesitant to give up flexibility, control, and value, they struggle with finding and vetting alternatives. We’ve brought on Kelvin to consult with our partner institutions and help them navigate decisions, challenges, and considerations to find the best path forward.”
With over 18 years of experience in the field of online education as a faculty member, administrator, and consultant, Bentley brings his own perspective, ideas, and experiences that he will share with higher ed institutions as they seek to enhance their digital learning initiatives. Bentley has led online learning initiatives for two- and four-year institutions, and he has served as a digital learning consultant for schools and organizations. Bentley most recently served as the founding Assistant Vice President for Digital Learning innovation at the University of West Florida and served as a part-time digital learning consultant for organizations including the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Tyton Partners, and Entangled Solutions. Bentley has received honors including being selected as a Digital Learning Fellow by the Association of Chief Academic Officers (ACAO) in 2017, a recipient of Blackboard’s 2017 Catalyst Award for Inclusive Education, and a Fulbright Specialist in 2010.
“Six Red Marbles is a leader in learning experience design and a trusted partner to many higher education institutions,” says Bentley. “I am extremely excited to join the SRM team, and I look forward to working with our higher education partners to further their efforts to use technology and innovation to improve learning experiences, at scale.”
Bentley joined Six Red Marbles full time on December 9.
