Campus Labs to Acquire Chalk & Wire, Expand Comprehensive Analytics Platform


Student Learning-focused ePortfolio and Credentialing Tools to Complement Existing Integrated Platform

BUFFALO, New York, April 5, 2018

Campus Labs announced today it will be acquiring Chalk & Wire to further expand the company’s comprehensive analytics platform. The addition of Chalk & Wire—a leading provider of learning assessment tools and credentialing solutions—will allow Campus Labs to provide enhanced and integrated ways to assess student learning, while also adding credentialing tools to help unlock the power of student learning across varied, measurable learning paths. In 2016 and 2017, Chalk & Wire won first place for best ePortfolio product based on a survey of Campus Technology readers.

“With the addition of Chalk & Wire’s market-leading ePortfolio tools and services, Campus Labs continues to evolve the resources available to follow the student journey through an institution,” said Eric Reich, Co-founder and President of Campus Labs. “By delivering a more embedded offering to assess students at the individual level, Campus Labs can continue to develop the opportunity to help institutions deepen their understanding of student learning.”

The Campus Labs platform gives institutions the power to extract valuable insights into institutional effectiveness, for the purposes of measuring student success and engagement, actionable insights from integrated learning assessment, or meaningful reporting for accreditation. Moving forward, institutions will benefit from the integration of Chalk & Wire by having the ability to better understand the student learning journey and more effectively promote persistence. And, students will benefit from an engaging experience that prepares them for life after graduation—including having tools that showcase competencies above and beyond a transcript.

“Through our two-decades-long legacy of work with more than 400 colleges and universities, we have developed tools and processes that evolve teaching in ways that improve student learning,” said Geoff Irvine, Founder and CEO of Chalk & Wire. “Joining Campus Labs is an exciting, natural next step that will allow us to offer more comprehensive, student-centered solutions to faculty and institutions.”
