Anden Solutions has been awarded a contract by the Center for Educational Technologies at Wheeling Jesuit University to develop and improve a content management system (CMS) used in a NASA-supported website called The Ed Tech Collaborative. This site is hosted at www.edtechcollaborative.com and is powered by the popular Joomla CMS. The Ed Tech Collaborative’s goal is to provide a collaborative environment where teachers and future teachers can share technology-rich lessons, regardless of grade-level or content domain.

The Erma Ora Byrd Center for Educational Technologies houses cutting-edge educational technology on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, WV. The center is home to the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future, the space agency’s principal research and development center for educational technologies. The Center for Educational Technologies also houses the Challenger Learning Center®, which provides students, teachers, and adult learners with simulations that emphasize teamwork, problem-solving, decision-making, and communication skills. The Challenger Learning Center in Wheeling is one of 51 centers worldwide established by the Challenger Center for Space Science in memory of the space shuttle Challenger.
