Nate Akins, the Lead Instructor for Accounting at Chattahoochee Technical College, uses Cirrus for the Benchmark Series: Microsoft Excel 365, 2019 Edition, Levels 1 & 2.
In this brief video, he discusses how Chattahoochee Technical College was able to easily integrate complete Cirrus course content into the Blackboard learning management system to drive student success.
Mia Moore, an instructor at Clark Atlanta University in the department of Cyber-Physical Systems, explains how the Cirrus learning environment helped her students be ready for the first day of class.
"Every student learns differently, and I think Cirrus gives each student the opportunity to excel. I can think of specific students that may have trouble keeping up with a classroom discussion or understanding the chapter in an online course, but after completing the different activities, they have mastered the skills."

"The transition from SNAP 2016 to Cirrus went very smoothly for me. Not having to download software was a huge plus, especially for online students. The improvements from SNAP 2016 are fantastic, making Cirrus even more user friendly for students and instructors."
