While SAEâ€™s rapid expansion in the real world continues apace, with the unveiling of the new â€˜super collegeâ€™ in London and massive new HQ in Oxford, the companyâ€™s on-line presence has just received a massive boost with the announcement of a â€˜unique partnershipâ€™ with Audiocourses.com. Audiocourses has become a number one location for distance learning with several courses available in areas such as music technology, recording techniques, digital audio and audio for video. In many regards itâ€™s a natural evolution as SAE already provide groundbreaking â€˜offlineâ€™ courses in these areas, among others.
Audiocoursesâ€™ Chris Hambly says: "The merging of SAE Institute, with its world leading face-to-face brand identity, and AC, with its pioneering methods and credibility for early adoption of online delivery, is a mouth-watering prospect. Bringing together these dominant brands really does provide a win- win situation for students globally, whereby regardless of location the student is able to immerse herself in the world's best solution for media related education both offline and online. It's perfect!
As well as the unique partnership, AC is bringing some serious educational tools and channels to the SAE table that have been operational with AC for many years and proven to engage the students remotely. In addition we will now be able to offer the student not only highly immersive learning programs online but also be able to offer them real-life hands-on equipment in any SAE Institute school worldwide, which are the best learning studios in the world."
SAEâ€™s Tom Misner adds: â€œThis merger strengthens SAEâ€™s already strong on-line presence and simply means that anyone with on-line access will soon be able to take advantage of SAEâ€™s superb education packages. It will take on-line distance learning for multimedia and audio production to another level entirely and is yet another example of SAEâ€™s incredible forward-thinking philosophy. 2008 has been quite a year for SAE already, and thereâ€™s plenty more to come!â€�
