The WebStudy team is Grateful to have served your organizations and your students!

2019 marks the close of WebStudy’s two decades of higher education service. Our privately-held, debt-free, and organically grown, business model could not sustain financial integrity without a shared long-horizon vision. We attempted to focus on our clients’ needs—not shareholders’ expectations—by delivering high-touch customer support as a priority over features and functionality. To those who stood in support of this mission - thank you for your support - it was a rewarding journey!
What would the WebStudy founders like to see future vendors carry into the next decade?
Service Partnership

We provided a ‘Service Partnership’ with a consortium of customers representing many types of learning institutions.  We combined a hosted LMS with Concierge 24/7/365 User Experience – on demand, always available, user support.

What Lessons Did We Learn?

Art of Teaching & Learning

#1 – A holistic approach to meshing people, process and technology is needed to catalyze higher education’s transition from current teaching methods to leveraging educational technology without losing the ‘Art of Teaching & Learning.’

21st Century Requirements

Colleges and university educational offerings have been built to serve post-Industrial era needs – 21st century requirements are and will continue to be distinct and different.

Teaching and Learning’s Transformation

Teaching and learning’s transformation from analog to digital will be a long journey.  In the early years of the digital era, technology functionality was focused on the ease of packaging entire online courses to increase enrollment access.

Blended Learning and Artificial Intelligence

The next twenty years can be characterized as a need to emphasize Blended Learning, adaptive systems and artificial intelligence to improve student completion and comprehension.

Digital Learning Environments

Thought leaders have written about frameworks such as Next Generation Digital Learning (NGDLE), Scalable Advanced Learning Ecosystem (SALE), Continuous Learning Environments (CLE), or just Digital Learning Environments (DLE) but understanding and realization of these future directions is reaching institutional decision makers at varying speeds.

Evidence-Based “Framework”

To move theory to practice and create an evidence-based “framework” to work within, it is necessary to experiment with combinations of technologies that will measurably impact learning.

Procuring the Perfect LMS

A large percentage of colleges and universities are still focused on their next RFP in the hopes of procuring the ‘perfect LMS’ – only to learn that the LMS alone is too costly to scale and optimize to achieve a measurable return on learning campus-wide.

Be Proactive in Planning

To simplify a complex system, more work is needed to iterate from distance learning to impactful learning outcomes – leading to “A New Digital Learning Path Forward.”

With more open-source tools in adaptive learning available, the industry can finally construct the needed evidence-based framework.  Business intelligence will assist instructors and students to make reliable real-time decisions affecting the probability of course completion.

Once colleges and universities are making evidence-based choices intelligently then an inter-operable technology stack of LMS tools can be mixed-n-matched with the right third party tools.

Experimentation precedes implementation, department by department each academic year, to achieve an online offering consistent with one’s mission.

Unprecedented flexibility, affordability, and scalability is required for any solution to be sustainable.
