Carver Jr., who’s on a first-name basis with such researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Chris Cummings – Klein Independent School District

Wide-eyed children looked on, as did a couple of teachers, as Chris Cummings went about upgrading a computer laboratory as part of his duties as information technology director at Pineywoods Community Academy in Lufkin, Texas, back in 2009. Formerly a Naval electronic warfare technician who had criss-crossed the globe while carrying out sensitive functions, Cummings […]

Castle Learning

Let’s say a grade school student is given a 30-question practice test and only gets half the questions correct, just 15 of them. In the past, the instructor would have indicated which questions he or she got wrong. The student would get a failing grade and it was off to the next lesson and test. […]

Clark State Community College

People in the IT industry will talk about building networks, building mainframes or building software.

In fall 2016, CNUSD completed its latest pilot program when it launched its MyCNUSD portal. Designed to create personalized user […]

Chris Diggs – Columbia Public Schools

Not all school districts tweet things like, “Had a blast geeking on career paths and robots with the 5th graders!” But not all school districts have a STEAM Bus. When the Columbia Public Schools (CPS) coordinator of practical arts had the idea to load a bunch of high-tech educational equipment (think: 3D printers, robotics tools […]

Casey Gordon – College of St. Benedict – St. John’s University

The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University have separate presidents, separate boards of trustees and separate budgets. But they share the same IT department.

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
