Accelerated Learning Program

Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is a nationwide educational program launched by the Community College of Baltimore County, with annual conferences and highly successful track record. It has been honored by numerous awards, and was recognized in testimony to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions as a top innovation.

This WordPress based web site was originally created for the 2012 ALP Conference in less than a week. Since then, it has grown into a resource center for the Accelerated Learning Program with videos, faculty resources including past conference presentations in PDF & PowerPoint form, and an online ALP Directory with a dynamic map of participating schools. Users can submit ALP Directory entries, Classroom materials, and Conference presentation proposals through forms, with automatic email routing & controlled, formatted posting.

JadeConcept was also contracted for an intense SEO optimizing and the social/newsletter setup. The website currently (2015) appears on the first page of organic Google results for the field term “ALP”, beating the Alp (mountain), the Merriam-Webster online definition of term, as well as any other accelerated learning programs worldwide, and is in the first place overall for the competitive “Accelerated Learning Program” keyphrase.

Site was redesigned in 2014 with new features and some visual changes, and now includes an administrative back end with project collaboration tools. Continuously under development with a number of new features planned. Client has been working with JadeConcept since 2012 to maintain the quality and usability of the website. We post most articles, create or edit images, and do general maintenance and updates as needed.

*Update: Since 2019, we no longer maintain this website. Any updates and modifications from that year on are the responsibility of the client.
