Bookend Model


Bookend ModelSometimes complex concepts are best summarized by simple illustrations. For example, when it comes to visualizing how GoSignMeUp and Learning Management Systems help facilitate common core professional development, the concept can be overwhelming!  Instead of the detailed diagram, think of the Bookend Model- the books are the content and the bookends that hold everything together are GoSignMeUp!  Our registration software not only facilitates sign-up and access to an on line Learning Management System (such as Blackboard Learn or Canvas), but also helps manage and analyze the data involved to continually improve the process.  The “Bookend” illustration above really helps summarize;

Learning Management Systems & Registration- the Bookend Model

  • Easy-to-use course registration that simplifies the enrollment process.
  • Powerful teaching tools to provide online learning for professional development.
  • Extensive reporting and analytics to help develop effective professional development learning cycles.

Simple!  Well learning management systems and  registration details can still be overwhelming, but the basic bookend model isn’t.  In a typical learning management system model, GoSignMeUp facilitates student registration and payment on the front end – and manages the data on the back – like bookends.   The learning management system then delivers the content, via face-to-face, online and hybrid classes.   All the while GoSignMeUp registration software handles the minutia of administration detail – such a sign-in sheets, attendance, transcript reporting, grades, certifications, email notifications, etc.  This data is also available for analysis in GoSignMeUp to analyze trends, examine profitability, etc. to fine-tune and modify classes and course pathways.

Created for K-12 environments, the combination of GoSignMeUp registration software and Blackboard Learn is ideal to streamline the registration and content-delivery process.  We can help you use your Race to the Top funding or Federal Common Core Money to create a turn-key solution to meet the common core state standards initiative thru professional development. GoSignMeUp has a lot of experience when it comes to CCSS – put a successful PD plan together with GoSignMeUp  and an LMS such as Blackboard Learn!
