Career Education Corporation (CEC) (NASDAQ: CECO) served on an expert panel focused on online learning during the inaugural meeting of the bipartisan Congressional E-Learning Caucus Wednesday. Judy Komar, CEC’s Vice President of Educational Technology, shared the early leadership and significant advances by private sector education institutions, notably CEC, in delivering state-of-the-art online learning programs to its students.

Staff for Caucus Co-chair’s U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) invited Komar to appear as a panelist to represent private sector higher education institutions and to offer insights into Career Education’s substantial investment and leadership in developing an award-winning Virtual Campus and other educational technologies for students of its two flagship universities – Colorado Technical University (CTU) and American InterContinental University (AIU).

“We have worked to bring together the technological side with the human side to give our students the best possible educational experience,” Komar told the caucus during the panel discussion at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. “E-Learning is becoming so incredibly popular. The more we have students learning online and the more institutions offer online courses, the more valuable e-Learning becomes.”

At Career Education, Komar is responsible for providing innovative technology solutions for students, helping develop content for more than 500 new courses annually and facilitating and integrating educational technologies. Along with CEC’s Virtual Campus, Komar was the chief architect in developing M.U.S.E. (My Unique Student Experience), which allows students to engage with course content in ways that best suit their preferred learning style. The M.U.S.E. platform recognizes that reading a textbook and traditional linear learning are not the ideal or most effective learning style for every student. Some students best absorb material by watching or hearing it, while others learn best through problem-solving using real-world examples or by practicing an activity until they’ve mastered it. M.U.S.E. adapts to and facilitates students’ distinct and diverse learning styles.
