Sales Cycle 3-9 months Microsoft Technologies Windows 2000/2003 Server, SQL Server 2000, ASP/ASP.Net Solution Enterprise Learning Management Systems and Learning Content Management Systems. The solutions are provided by a 3 rd party ISV. They enable customers to easily create and organize instructional materials, provide basic assessments, and support basic communications in “fully online” or “hybrid/blended” courses. Results Reduced time to develop online or hybrid/blended courses. Students have faster access to course materials. Help desk/support calls decrease due to consistency across multiple courses and integration with other enterprise systems. Customer Implementations Baylor University, University of Cincinatti, Babson College
One student, five classes, five departments, five different user interfaces…
One central IT organization, five different departments, five integration projects.
Pain: Need enterprise system rather than cobbled together departmental systems.
Vision: Improve student experience, system reliability, student and faculty support and integration with campus enterprise systems through a single system. Reason
Different systems supported by different departments
No centralized support
Limited integration with enterprise systems
Inconsistent experiences for students

Solution Enables educators and learners to engage in team and group activities anytime, anywhere in a structured or adhoc environment, all while minimizing additional training by utilizing familiar tools. Results Enhanced team and group collaboration, significant time savings on team based activities, increased communication, and faster feedback. Customer Implementations Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, University of Massachusetts – Amherst
Connect: Customer Conversation Today: Students are connected and social. Learning happens everywhere. Instructional technology limits communication and collaboration. Pain: Meeting high demands of increasingly sophisticated students and faculty.
Vision: What if
Faculty and students could work collaboratively in online communities
Real-time presence information could take the friction out of collaborating
Faculty could use the same infrastructure to support their research needs
Faculty feel constrained by current learning management systems
Infrastructure is more about managing rather than enabling students to engage in learning activities
Failure to attract and retain students, faculty and staff
Flat learning experiences
Doesn’t fit the mobile lifestyle

Johns Hopkins “ We needed to create an infrastructure that would help nurses provide palliative care with the greatest competence. To achieve this goal, we had to address their needs to connect with each other and provide access to critical resources as they dealt with challenging cases right at the bedside.” Dr. Cynda Rushton, Project Director for the National Nursing Leadership Academy Faculty member, Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing

Content adheres to IMS/SCORM industry standards and is readily integrated into learning management systems. Educators and learners can express their ideas effectively without requiring special purpose hardware or facilities, and enabling the friction-free capture of content for later re-use. Enables capture of lectures for distance learning and on-demand playback at a later time. Results Faculty report significant time savings in producing learning content. Students have access to important learning resources on-demand. Costs of producing digital media content reduced by up to 50%. Customer Implementations University of Wisconsin “eTeach”; Wharton; Darden School of Business; Seattle Community College, University of Cincinatti
Create: Customer Conversation Today: While motivated faculty are embracing technology, the gap for the rest of them is getting bigger. Pain: Dissatisfied faculty, administrators, students, and staff– lack of support & training on new systems/desktops.
Vision: What if?
Faculty could use familiar tools
Reduce faculty support costs
Same technology enhances faculty’s research activities
Faculty feel using technology too difficult and time consuming
Students not stimulated
Support costs rising
Faculty taking on large, time-consuming multimedia projects, affecting research productivity
