Home > Products > Transitioning from Media Cruiser to LearnMate

Are you running a Media Cruiser-based lab and looking to upgrade?  While we no longer develop titles in Media Cruiser, many of your favorites are still available, just in a different, more up-to-date format.

Fortunately, Intelitek has packaged them into an easy-to-buy and manage program called Introduction to STEM Pathways.

Intelitek’s Introduction to STEM Pathways provides an easy-to-implement solution for delivering early engagement and discovery of science, technology, engineering and mathematics topics for middle and high school students.

Using multiple instructional strategies including activity-based learning and immersive e-learning, students explore technology, examine science and math concepts and investigate careers in STEM. The standards-based curriculum emphasizes 21st Century skills including teamwork, leadership and creative problem-solving skills. Relevant topics like robotics, energy systems and transportation help students see the connection between STEM and the world around them.

Introduction to STEM Pathways makes implementation easy. Each 9-week course provides everything needed out of the box, ready to use. You can choose flexible packages based on your class size. You can customize your program by adding topics in any configuration to the requisite Foundations course. The curriculum works with any instructional method whether instructor-led, self-directed or collaborative.

As mentioned, the program begins with requisite Foundations of STEM, which includes the LearnMate LMS, and comprises the following topics:
