Harvestroad partners with US open source developer

By

eLearning software developer HarvestRoad (ASX:HRD) has formed a partnership with The rSmart Group, an open source education software developer, based in Phoenix, Arizona.

rSmart is a provider of open source application software to the higher education market.  The rSmart suite of enterprise financial and collaborative learning applications offers colleges and universities an alternative choice that breaks down their dependence on proprietary software vendors.

Under the terms of the partnership both organisations will non-exclusively promote one another's products and services to their respective clients in Higher Education.

Commenting on the partnership agreement, rSmart Group CEO, Ray Barker said, 'rSmart is very pleased to partner with HarvestRoad.  Their Learning Object Repository solution, HarvestRoad Hive is a synergistic fit with our application software. In particular, HarvestRoad's 'content bridge' strategy represents a highly flexible, cost effective and managed approach for institutions wishing to make the transition from proprietary-based learning delivery systems to the functionality-rich mix of open source and commercial off-the-shelf independent solutions.'

HarvestRoad's 'content bridge' strategy offers clients the choice to migrate their content from existing vendor-locked proprietary repositories to an independent Learning Object Repository that works with the systems that create and deliver learning content. 

Grame Barty, HarvestRoad Founder and Managing Director said, 'HarvestRoad is extremely pleased to partner with the rSmart Group.  Our organisations share many synergies and a common purpose in providing our Higher Education market with the best possible eLearning collaborative solutions that protect their intellectual capital and save them money.'
