SANTA ANA, Calif. Sept. 23 2014 – Greenwood Hall Inc. (OTCBB: ELRN), education technology provider of dynamic student lifecycle management solutions for colleges and universities, today announced the company has signed an exclusive agreement with Klass Apps Inc., a unique student service mobility application developer, to deliver My 24/7 Campus, an exclusive customized mobile app geared toward maximizing student success.

 

Offering anytime on-demand access, My 24/7 Campus will provide students with a vast array of interactive school-based features, including live personalized success advising, tutoring and career planning.  Fully integrated with Greenwood Hall’s enrollment management solutions, My 24/7 Campus also will feature student concierge services, such as guidance on problem solving and motivation as well as financial literacy.

 

"We’re excited to partner with Klass Apps, a leader in the development of enterprise mobile apps, to further engage with students to help better manage their college experience,” said Dr. John R.
