Boulder, CO (December 6, 2016) – Core Learning Exchange (Core-LX.com), a Boulder, CO-based mastery learning platform developer, and Toolwire (Toolwire.com), a developer of game-based simulations for career and technical education skills, announce a partnership that makes Toolwire products available today to all Core Learning Exchange subscribers.
Toolwire, which has delivered over 1 billion minutes of digital learning over the past five years, produces digital game-based simulations that immerse students (secondary through college) in authentic workplace scenarios targeting essential 21st Century skills.

“Core Learning Exchange has encountered a strong demand for CTE digital content and is excited to help schools prepare students with the skills they need for career and college readiness by providing these high quality simulation games,” comments Jeff Katzman, Founder and CEO of Core Learning Exchange.
