Synergy ITC

Content Delivery and Management System

Synergy ITC is the content delivery and management system for Pitsco Education curriculum. It provides instructors with the tools needed to schedule students into curriculum content and manage their grades received in that content.

Synergy ITC also delivers content to students, including images, graphics, videos, and audio-based instruction. All of this is handled from the cloud.

Synergy ITC includes a secure login feature that ensures students work on individually assigned content and receive grades for only their work. 

Synergy ITC is built upon a proprietary engine that leverages technologies such as PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript in a way that provides a consistent framework for development.

Client Access to Synergy ITC

Content is delivered from a cloud server through an internet browser. Access to the majority of pages within Synergy ITC is based on standard AJAX and Dynamic HTML techniques. Modules is a Flash based product while IPLs and Expeditions are HTML5 products, all delivered through ITC. Local browser caching of media helps relieve network load.
