1. Describe your company and your organization.
Online Learning is a department of BYU-Idaho that oversees online curriculum development, instruction, and student support. Online Learning creates online courses consumed by more than 30,000 students each year. Additionally, they hire, train, and manage a team of 1,600+ remote instructors.

2. Why did you choose to invest in Khoros?
We invested in Khoros because we wanted a robust community platform that would be a one-stop-shop for our 1,600+ online instructors in training, communication, skill growth, and professional interaction.

3. How does Khoros help you deliver results beyond what a team your size normally can do?
The Khoros community platform helps us take our campus in Rexburg, Idaho, to our online instructors throughout the United States. Through the community, instructors feel connected to their colleagues, the university, and their work responsibilities in ways that wouldn't be possible otherwise.
