Our Programs branch answers the need when a managed collaboration of public and private entities require independence from bias and effective management is essential to achieving common goals. This includes our Digital Badge Design, the California Cyberhub and Compression Planning programs. Each of these programs are independent structures designed to serve specific needs of Public, Private and Societal stake holders.

SynED Initiatives’ goal is to lead and galvanize budding relevant hybrid educational solutions into sustained growth and adoption across all platforms and institutions.
