Six Red Marbles Now Sustaining Member of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
Aug 16, 2019
Six Red Marbles (SRM) is honored to announce a new affiliation with the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB), the leading American higher education association committed to strengthening governing boards at colleges, universities, and their affiliated foundations. The two organizations share the goal of supporting innovation through technology in an effort to serve the needs of a shifting higher education market.
“We are looking forward to bringing our deep knowledge of the higher education landscape, quality course development, and content transformation to the doorstep of universities through the assistance of AGB,” says CEO and President of Six Red Marbles, David Goodman. “With this partnership, we will be able to help institutions scale development of programs—much like OPMs, but without the revenue sharing model, and the institutions would own the programs upon completion. Our unique model allows schools to scale while maintaining quality and ownership of their own online and distance learning programs.”
“AGB is proud to welcome Six Red Marbles to our prestigious list of corporate Sustaining Members,” says Henry Stoever, President and CEO of AGB. “The tools and services they bring to online and distance learning are models of industry-leading practice and emerging technologies that presidents and their governing boards should consider as they address the challenges facing higher education. Sustaining Members are a crucial part of AGB’s efforts to ensure well-informed and prepared governing boards.”
SRM will share its 30+ years of experience developing educational content and technology with AGB members, who are key decision-makers at leading universities and colleges across the United States. SRM is well-poised to offer consulting in regard to new learning science best practices and innovations to help inform strategy for online and distance learning.
AGB provides leadership and counsel to its members and other stakeholders to help them govern in the changing higher education landscape. Both AGB and SRM actively inform universities and colleges of emerging technologies and associated best practices to help inform program oversight and development. SRM’s service offerings have been refined throughout its long history in education, and the organization has developed hundreds of interactive learning programs and thousands of courses for clients in the higher education space over the past few decades.
