Rouxbe, a leading online culinary school, is offering an updated Culinary Arts Package to help power culinary schools across the nation as instructors are forced to shift classes online, or look to create blended learning opportunities. The program is currently being used by nearly 10 percent of culinary programs across the U.S.
The program provides a proven way for instructors in high schools or post-secondary schools to seamlessly move their students into an online learning structure that is easily customizable. While each institution is unique and has its own organizational structure and operations, Rouxbe has successfully on-boarded most schools within a week of coming to an agreement. Rouxbe setup includes a white-labeled site using institutions’ branding and may also include integration with common Learning Management Systems including Canvas, Moodle, and Blackboard Learning.
“The reality is that the current pandemic will have a lasting impact—from the way we communicate, work and perhaps most significantly, the way that we learn,” says Ken Rubin, Chief Culinary Officer at Rouxbe. “Rouxbe has been training culinary students online for over 15 years; we aren’t pulling something together quickly in response to the current pandemic. We have the tools and platform to ensure every student learns the foundations needed to succeed in a culinary career.”
Through the Rouxbe platform and the existing Rouxbe library of courses and lessons, instructors are able to personalize their student’s instruction based on their curriculum. Rouxbe can also simply act as a way to augment and support an existing instructional plan, assigning specific lessons or tasks as needed.
The Culinary Arts Package includes:
- High-definition instructional videos
- Interactive activities and assessments
- Ability to support 100% online as well as blended programs
- Communication platform
Available curriculum includes: Culinary Foundations, Plant-Based Foundations, Seafood Literacy, James Beard Foundation’s Waste Not, and American Egg Board’s EggPro Course
Through June 30, 2020 Rouxbe will offer special discounted pricing for this program for schools to take advantage of. As a part of this, Individual students and administrators will maintain access to the Rouxbe platform for one full year.
