Company History

Plan your work and work your plan ...this is what it looks like
  • Start!

    In 1996, a professor and his graduate student created the first-generation course management system, called WebStudy.

  • R&D Work Group Formed

    From 1997 to 2003 a husband and wife team financed a WebStudy team to serve as a dedicated R&D work-group to a consortium of colleges and universities who downsized the use of telecourses for distance education as they ushered in online coursework.

  • WebStudy Inc. incorporated as a C-corp

    In 2004 WebStudy Inc. was incorporated as a C-corp. From 2004 to 2012, WebStudy continued to operate as a R&D organization with no sales force. Our differentiation was delivering ‘influenced-sourced”, customer driven, LMS product development to under 100 participating colleges and universities with affordable “all-in Pricing” that included an unprecedented level of help desk support and on-demand training.

  • 2012 to 2015

    From 2012 to 2015, analysts confirmed 90% of all institutions of higher education had chosen either Bb or Moodle as their LMS provider. The industry analysts reflected, examined and reported that the role of educational technology was changing from student access to student success.

  • 2015-2018 and the Future?

    From 2015 – 2018, industry research showed that even with a newcomer like Canvas, collectively an LMS remains a course in a box architecturally. In attempts to find learning in a learning management system, thought leaders propose a Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE) is forthcoming.

  • Present day to AY2025

    Our one hundred year journey into the digital era has just begun…together we need to recalibrate lessons learned in the first twenty years of eLearning

WebStudy International emerged from three business models over a period of twenty years, while serving higher education unique needs from three perspectives:

 

  • A dedicated technology developer to a mid-atlantic consortium of two year and four year colleges and universities that migrated distance learning telecourses to online courses
  • A SaaS provider of a LMS where 100% of proceeds went to development NOT sales nor branding
  • Now the leader in a new model, Service in a Software (SiaS) provider called WebStudy International

 

Our team believed organically growing a service organization was equally important to the features and functionality of the software.  But after twenty years, the user community cannot measure if learning takes place in the Learning Management System.
