Marci Campbell Named Vice President of Solutions Management for Knovation
CINCINNATI, OH – March 19, 2012 – Knovation, the leader in advanced, personalized learning solutions, today announced that effective March 1, 2012, Marci Campbell has been promoted to Vice President of Solutions Management. Campbell will lead the company’s product development and innovation process and support the strategic direction of the company.
The introduction of icurio comes on the heels of Knovation’s corporate transformation announcement, which reflects a new name and broadening vision for the company formerly known as netTrekker. Knovation’s icurio enables districts to bridge from fixed traditional content to flexible digital content that can be targeted to meet the unique needs of learners across the learning continuum. The only digital curriculum content solution that delivers a comprehensive collection of 330,000 digital learning resources aligned to state and Common Core standards, icurio provides teachers more time and flexibility to engage students and address their individual needs and gives students the content and tools they need to take charge of their own learning.
“With over seven years with Knovation, 10 years in the education field, and 13 years in software development, Marci has proven herself again and again as a leader within our company, within the education profession and within her community. Marci will play an even broader and more critical role as Knovation continues on its aggressive path to expand our suite of advanced technologies, professional services and content solutions to deliver learner-centered micro-curriculum content,” said Randy Wilhelm, CEO and co-founder of Knovation.
In her new role, Campbell will work to enhance Knovation’s current and legacy brands including icurio, the flagship digital curriculum content solution for personalized learning; netTrekker Search, the company’s legacy educational search product and igotta, the personalized student workspace solution developed in partnership with Zeus Learning. She will also identify future product initiatives while balancing product strategy with company goals, customer demand and the competitive landscape. Prior to taking on this role, Campbell served as Director of Next Generation Solutions for the company, formerly known as netTrekker, where she was responsible for delivering industry-leading solutions driven by research, innovation and outstanding user experience. During her time with netTrekker, Campbell also served as manager of professional development and as a customer support and training specialist.
Campbell’s expertise spans across a distinguished career as both an educator and a software engineer. Prior to joining Knovation (netTrekker), Campbell served as the technology coordinator for St. Margaret of York School in Loveland, Ohio, where she morphed her software development experience with her love for teaching. Campbell spent the formative part of her career for 13 years as a software engineer at Cincom Systems, Inc, where she was responsible for research, designing, testing, planning and implementing various relational database and workflow tools.
Outside of Knovation, Campbell is a member of the ELearning Guild, a community of practice for designers, developers, and managers of eLearning, as well as the Dirty Old Ladies of Software (DOLS), a networking organization for women in the business of education technology. Campbell continues to provide technology support for the St. Margaret of York School.
Campbell earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, Magna Cum Laude from Boston College and a Graduate Certificate in Instructional Technology from San Diego State University. She holds an Ohio Teaching Certificate.
