At WAAT, Cruse is concerned that state policymakers may not understand the expenses involved in her blended model, which rents and staffs drop-in centers in strip malls to provide students with the computer access, teachers and mentors many need for times when they encounter academic or motivation "hiccups" in their online courses.
For the WAAT program, Cruse says the drop-in centers, where students can go to access computers if their own has crashed or their parents can no longer afford Internet access, have played an important role.
While WAAT Media and Vantrix have been working together since 2006, WAAT Media's selection of Vantrix Store Optimizer as its video optimization and publishing platform marks an important milestone for both companies.
Camill Sayadeh, co-founder and COO of WAAT Media, commented, "video is the fastest growing content category in our catalog.
