Campus Direct is a web-enabled marketing firm in the distance learning sector.
The company’s initial consumer-facing business will be launched on December 15, 2009, at www.GreatDegree.com. At Great Degree, Campus Direct generates value for distance learning institutions by providing highly qualified prospective students who are well-positioned to succeed and graduate. In addition to an agnostic, multi-variable search and matching engine, GreatDegree.com features innovative student-focused tools to assist prospective online learners in making the right choices for their future, both in education and career.
The company also runs a high school awards program that honors all-around students at www.DiscusAwards.com. The Discus Awards is the only scholarship and awards program honoring active and engaged high school students who excel in and out of school. Looking beyond just grades, test scores, and win-loss records, the Discus Awards recognize students for achievement in at least three areas, from community service and work to faith and the arts. Winners are selected by a panel of teachers, counselors, and education professionals, and each winner is eligible for a $2,000 college scholarship awarded each month of the school year. The Discus Awards are presented by Campus Direct, a leading educational services company, and Recognition Media, a producer of major awards programs, including The Webby Awards and The Telly Awards.
