Blackboard Empire – Bigger, Meet Better

What does Blackboard’s acquisition of Moodlerooms and Netspot mean to educators? For those who will be enveloped into the Blackboard empire, especially for those who recently fled Blackboard for open source, it means a lack of customer choice.

As an educational technology leader, I’m stunned by this move and wondering how it demonstrates customer partnership. By adding to an already overwhelming number of products, is the hope that LMS purchasing decisions will become so byzantine that schools will just default to the name-brand market leader?

At WebStudy, we like to make things simple. We offer software as a service. Through our commitment to customer partnership, we work to understand the unique and changing needs of each customer. We understand that colleges across the country are being forced to trim their budgets, as online enrollment continues to rise.

That’s why we shifted to all-inclusive pricing a few years back. With WebStudy Learning, everything is included in one price. All modules, features, functions and upgrades are included.

Another priority for most colleges is LMS technology that is reliable and effective. That’s why we’ve developed a 24/7 Helpdesk that is actually there for you, any hour of any day.

WebStudy Learning LMS is also known for its easy migration, zero downtime, continuous FREE product upgrades and maximizing student engagement. But don’t take my word for it. Talk with some of our customers, who you can listen to here.

WebStudy understands the challenges you face. The challenges of having to do more with less. And in my experience, bigger isn’t necessarily better.
