Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

To provide a seamless experience for both institutions and their learners, Pearson today announced a strategic partnership with Augusoft Lumens, the cloud-based enrollment management system designed for the unique needs of the continuing education industry. The partnership will allow learners who wish to take Pearson Workforce Education (PWE) courses at both two and four-year institutions to enroll instantaneously in PWE self-paced, fully online courses.
