Engage, Create and Learn
In 2003, Steve founded I Support Learning with a single passion: to create engaging curricula that would get students excited about learning 21st century and STEM skills (science, technology, engineering, and math). Steve saw that by using the backdrop of a career he could make all the learning relevant to the learner and practical for their future. By creating career simulations using , sophisticated graphics, animations, video tutors, and high-tech simulated job scenarios—as well as design input from over hundreds of teachers and administrators—the team members at I Support Learning have developed an award-winning formula that inspires learners and educators alike.
In 2013 ISL became CTeLearning. The name change reflects what has been the focus for the company over its first 10 years. “Our comitment to Career and Technical Education and advancing CTE through innovative eLearning strategies and products is what we do. Now our name makes it clear for all to see.” Steve Waddell Founder CTeLearning.
Everyday tens of thousands students (secondary and post-secondary) worldwide use CTeLearning’s courses online and in blended learning classrooms. CTeLearning has won major awards for quality of the company as well as for the superior quality of products CTe brings to education. But despite all the successes, the mission is still the same: to engage learners and keep them learning, discovering their passions and developing their talents —one student at a time.
