Webanywhere, a global learning solutions provider, and JetBlue, one of America’s leading carriers, have been awarded a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold Award in Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology. The win was announced on Friday, December 15th, 2017.
“In a world where technology has the power to make education affordable and accessible, MyDegree has opened the door of opportunity for JetBlue crewmembers in the US and abroad,” said Cody Cleverly, Manager of Academic Programs at JetBlue. “This gold award underscores the employer’s duty to lead advances in learning technology and educational access.”
MyDegree, the technology solution created by Webanywhere in partnership with JetBlue, enables JetBlue employees to earn a college degree easier than ever before. The platform facilitates the entire experience from enrollment to getting a degree, aggregates a myriad of content from several different course providers, facilitates relationships with corporate mentors and advisors that help learners succeed, and most importantly, gives learners the freedom to learn at their own rate with complete flexibility in how they progress.
MyDegree has created a 33% administrative and coaching efficiency, which has enabled JetBlue to increase enrollment by one third without having to increase the size of the support staff. MyDegree was also able to help JetBlue reduce their average per-employee cost by 60%.
