SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greenwood Hall, Inc. (OTCQB:ELRN), an education technology company that helps colleges and universities increase revenue and improve student engagement and outcomes, today announced the Company has entered into an agreement with New York City-based Borough of Manhattan Community College to assess and suggest changes to the provisioning of student services support and to assist students with gaining better access to college services.
