Orlando Magic Celebrate Students’ Completion of Pepsi Summer Mentorship Program

Orlando Magic Celebrate Students’ Completion of Pepsi Summer Mentorship Program
Magic, Pepsi Stronger Together and CTG present Peyton Spencer with certificate.

ORLANDO, Fla. - August 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Over the last eight weeks, children from the Eatonville Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida have gone through an extensive mentorship program put on by the Orlando Magic, Pepsi Stronger Together, and the Close the Gap (CTG) Foundation in an effort to learn valuable lessons about sport, leadership, and life.  

The youth mentorship camp featured conversations with guest speakers about financial literacy, leadership, career opportunities, and other lessons for building healthy and productive lives. 

Among those guest speakers was Magic guard Devin Cannady, who shared his inspirational life journey with the children. 

So, it was only fitting that as the children celebrated their completion of the program on Monday, Cannady - along with other representatives from the Magic, the CTG Foundation, and the Boys & Girls Club - were in attendance for their graduation ceremony. 

The impact of the program is evident. At the start of the camp, many of the children were shy and lacked the confidence needed to speak effectively in front of their peers. Upon their graduation, each child stood up in front of the room and accepted a certificate from Cannady, CTG co-founders Rich Baker and Clifton Smith Jr., and motivational speaker Dr. Javar Godfrey while shaking their hands and looking them each in the eye. Then, they turned to the audience and, with confidence and clarity, shared an aspirational goal for their future. 

One of the many standout students in the program is 17-year-old Peyton Spencer (pictured in photo), who's completed the camp for the second time. Now a leader for her peers, she's displayed tremendous growth over the last year, especially when it comes to public speaking. 

"Last year, I was very scared," she explained. "Every time (they would call on me), I would be like 'oh, no.' But this summer, I saw myself like today, raising my hand with every question. Being more comfortable with my answers. I think that's a big difference."  

Spencer has enjoyed a number of elements of the course, including life lessons from Dr. Godfrey and the financial literacy program with BankUnited. But among her favorite experiences were touring the Amway Center, attending a Magic career panel, and hearing from Cannady.  

"I feel very special," she said. 

Now, Spencer and the other students in the program will have even more to tell their friends. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Cannady announced to the group that the Magic will host all the members of the camp at a game next season. 

"It's going to be a blast," said Baker. "They grow up 10 minutes from the arena, but (many of them) have never stepped foot inside of it.

Pathify Grows 25% in Q2 2022

A new wave of schools choose Pathify's Engagement Hub

DENVER - August 3, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Pathify, the only provider of a centralized higher education Engagement Hub, exited the second quarter with record growth, increasing revenue by 25 percent.

Dramatically improving the traditional student portal by extending personalized experiences to prospects, students, faculty and alumni, Pathify is on track to more than double revenue for the fourth consecutive year.

"It's amazing to see how schools react when we have the opportunity to show off the platform," said Matt Hammond, Chief Revenue Officer at Pathify. "Our product and engineering teams have done an incredible job maintaining the obvious innovation and capability advantage for several years now. I could say we let the results speak for themselves — but thankfully our customers take care of that."

Some of the institutions who chose the Pathify Engagement Hub in Q2 include:

  • St. Petersburg College
  • Columbia College
  • Winston-Salem State University
  • Lassen College
  • Southern University System
  • University System of New Hampshire

"We're obviously excited and humbled by these results," said Chase Williams, Chief Executive Officer of Pathify. "But I think what we're most proud of is maintaining world-class service — even as customer numbers increase. It's truly become a community of schools who work together to share ideas and innovations. Our customers keep driving us in the right direction, and the best is yet to come."

The Pathify Engagement Hub fills the void at the center of the higher education digital ecosystem, creating a centralized user experience unifying all things digital. Offering highly personalized experiences for users at every point in their journey, the Engagement Hub encourages system-agnostic integrations, collaborative social groups, personalized tasks, and multi-channel communication across web and mobile. 

"St. Petersburg College decided to partner with Pathify and implement their engagement and communications platform to enhance the student experience," said Dr. Sabrina Crawford, Associate Vice President of Institutional Effectiveness and Academic Services. "We started our search looking for a platform to enhance student engagement and success by providing our students with an online community. We discovered Pathify also includes a number of other capabilities improving our ability to provide more targeted communication and outreach to students, ensuring they could easily locate the resources and support services they need."

These schools join existing customers such as Utah State University, Alabama A&M University, Johnson & Wales University — and many more.

Korean EdTech Startup ‘Day 1 Company’ Plans to Dive Into US

Korean EdTech Startup ‘Day 1 Company’ Plans to Dive Into US
Affect Effects Course

Ian Boldon is Dive's Affect Effects Teacher

SAN FRANCISCO - August 2, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Korean EdTech startup, Day 1 Company, has announced plans to enter the U.S. market with the launch of a new product: Dive.

So, what exactly is Day 1 Company? Day 1 Company launched nearly one decade ago with a goal of bringing adult education to the masses in Korea. Since 2013, it has grown to become one of the giants of adult education domestically.

South Korea itself is well known for its passion for education - from public schooling and private academies at a young age to being one of the leaders for average spend per capita in adult education. While many sources state this focus on education can be seen as an obsession, especially with younger learners, it has helped create Day 1 Company as the company it is. And that is a multi-million dollar company which has seen significant investment from Softbank, IMM Investment Corp, and Cowell E Holdings.

Day 1 Company currently focuses most of its attention on the Korean market - its most well-known product, Fast Campus, is the market leader in Korea for online VOD courses. The plans to expand to the U.S. is something which they have already started with another product, Coloso.

The biggest question mark for Day 1 Company and Dive is does success in the Asian market equate to success in the international market? The online education market is already saturated with a plethora of companies battling out to become the market leader. This ranges from cheaper courses without well-known instructors, to top-of-the-range, premium options.

Dive has put a lot of focus on getting the right instructors in, with a diverse instructor pool ranging from top professionals with experience in companies to business owners and CEOs.

Thus far, the main focus of Dive's courses has been on tech design. It is yet to be seen if Dive's approach of focusing on design courses will remain consistent or if they will branch out to other popular areas such as data science or web development.

Having said that, design is still such a broad spectrum. and Dive's initial course offerings include an All-In-One Design Course. This covers everything - UI/UX, video editing and everything in between. This is a bold strategy and it is yet to be seen how many users would be interested in one course with everything. However, the price point of $149.99 does give it a competitive edge over other major online education companies.

One point that particularly sticks out about Dive is that all courses are produced and edited in-house. This means that curriculum structure or video quality does not fluctuate depending on the instructor. It also makes taking courses by different instructors a more fluid experience.

Will all of this be enough to compete in the crowded US market? Time will tell.
