IBM Connections tools open up lines of communication and help our teachers take greater control of their professional development.

— J. Alvin Wilbanks, CEO and superintendent, GCPS

Business Challenge story

As part of its digital Content, Learning, Assessment and Support System (eCLASS) program, Gwinnett County Public Schools wanted to help teachers and school leaders collaborate more effectively on ways to improve curriculum and sharpen instructional skills.

Transformation

To support information sharing within and among schools, the district worked with strategic partner IBM to deploy what they called a "Collaboration tool" based on IBM Connections software.

Benefits

GCPS now uses the Collaboration tool to coordinate formal staff summer training, and the eCLASS online communities provide an opportunity for new and veteran instructors to collaborate and share information with ease.
