Educators and schools are better able to leverage internal resources and save money, improve learning outcomes,
and provide the convenience, flexibility, and support that students require. The bottom line: we make it easier for you to do
this part of your job. The rest, of course, is up to you.
Take two geeky (read: cutting edge) education technology pioneers – coincidently former educators themselves – who are passionate about
using technology to improve the delivery and use of course material.
Build a web platform that encompasses the course assembly and delivery process from start to finish.
Leverage leading technology to ensure the most optimal educator and student experience available.
Assemble a responsive and caring team of folks who work tirelessly to constantly improve Study.Net
– even if we think it’s pretty good already.
Dr. Charles Morrissey starts Study.Net, inspired by his Ph.D research that online collaborative learning could lead to better educational outcomes.
Collaborative online learning defined the nascent company; leverage new technologies as a neutral, one-stop resource, to improve learning performance.
When Study.Net first developed its service for convenient, efficient delivery of digital learning content, the required technology was still developing.
Study.Net expanded the idea of collaborative learning and pioneered use of the Internet for the direct delivery of business cases and
articles to students, in partnership with Harvard Business Publishing.
The advent of accessible broadband connectivity, inexpensive laptops (and now tablets), and growing digital content libraries enabled rapid growth and widespread use.
More than 10,000 educators at over 1,000 universities worldwide have used Study.Net to assemble, manage, and deliver digital course material.
Study.Net is, and continues to be, at the forefront of digital technology in higher education – as a delivery service and content management
platform. We make teaching and learning more convenient and accessible through an ever expanding range of services and content tools.
Study.Net's founders, Chuck Morrissey, and the company's first outside investor,
Jay McGoodwin, provide the vision to guide Study.Net in a market
characterized by rapid technology shifts and increasing acceptance of online services.
Study.Net has always been about pushing the boundaries of technology in education. Our continuing effort to construct an easy to use digital learning
space is a testament to this mission. Bio
I take education personally. Study.Net has been part of a long-term commitment to make effective learning accessible to an ever growing group of learners. After 15 years, we've shown we're serious about the mission. Bio
