"Whether you are developing a new program or expanding an existing program, Apex Learning is committed to providing comprehensive services to support implementation success," said Cheryl Vedoe, CEO of Apex Learning.

Developed to offer immediate access to information at the critical moment it's needed, the new Educator Academy is one component of the comprehensive services offered by Apex Learning. The Academy enables educators to complete on-demand training at their convenience, learn about best practices and successful implementation models, access a range of resources, and connect with other educators.

In much the same way schools are incorporating online and blended learning into instruction, Apex Learning is applying these models to professional development and support for teachers and administrators. Educator Academy is a natural complement to the traditional onsite and web conference delivery models also offered by Apex Learning.
