Tennessee State University (TSU) has awarded The Integrated Solution Group, Inc. a contract to develop a statewide database and web based interactive training assessment system for The Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance (TECTA). The system will provide TECTA with a central database for student tracking and reporting, and a web based interactive learning and assessment environment where material is presented to foster understanding and use of the Tennessee Early Learning Development Standards (TN-ELDS) to training participants providing care and education to young children.
Tennessee State University (TSU) is a comprehensive, urban, coeducational land-grant university founded in 1912. The university has two primary locations – a 450-acre main campus, with more than 65 buildings, located in a residential setting; and the Avon Williams Campus located in the heart of downtown, near the center of the Nashville business and government district. TSU is a Tennessee Board of Regents System institution. The Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) is the sixth largest system of public higher education in the nation, with 45 campuses, over 185,000 students, and 15,000 full-time employees. Tennessee State University is one of the leading institutions in the Tennessee Board of Regents system for research funding.
The TECTA program, managed by the Center of Excellence for Learning Sciences in the Division of Research and Sponsored Programs at Tennessee State University, is sponsored and funded by the Tennessee Department of Human Services. TECTA is a consortium of nine TBR universities and community colleges that provides an academic gateway for preparation of professional early childhood personnel. The web-based interactive learning portal will be the first e-learning initiative established by the Tennessee Department of Human Services.
