    About Us

    We are a global movement of people working in partnership

    Who Are We

    A triad formed by a philanthropist, a consultant, and an organizational development facilitator.
    We've merged consulting and process design facilitation into a service to enable administrators, staff and instructors to optimize learning for the communities they serve.

    The WebStudy Foundation is a 501.3c organization focused on creating a positive social impact as higher education proactively journeys through a created future.

    A team of veteran higher education consultants and organizational development facilitators have joined ranks to offer proven, affordable solutions to help colleges and universities adapt to BIG change expeditiously.

    Kevin Kelly, EdD

    Dr. Kelly teaches online courses as a Lecturer in the Department of Equity, Leadership Studies, and Instructional Technologies at San Francisco State University, where he previously served for 13 years as the Online Teaching and Learning Manager. He works with colleges and universities as a consultant to address distance education, educational technology, and organizational challenges. Kevin co-authored with Todd Zakrajsek the 2021 Stylus book, Advancing Online Teaching: Creating Equity-Based Digital Learning Environments.

    Lenny Lind

    Lenny Lind, author of Virtuous Meetings and Facilitators Guide to Participatory Decision Making founded Covision Design. His work began with an IBM system called Group Decision Making Support System (GPSS). He and a number of organizational development experts spent twenty-five years honing the design and facilitation process that is pre-requisite to the technology being successful. It was their belief that the technology application alone was limited in achieving its maximum value.

    Gisele Larose

    Gisele Larose is the Executive Director of the WebStudy Foundation. She is a strategist and expert planner having worked many years in senior executive roles in healthcare and edTech.

    Curt Corbi

    Curt Corbi, brings fifty-one years of information technology experience to the Foundation inclusive of corporate IT management and senior IT consulting focused on application development, product development, business development, and project management.

    Our shared vision is for higher education institutions to be sustainable and thrive in this century.

    Gisele and Curt partnered for twenty years to develop, market, and support a LMS (Learning Management System) holding the name, WebStudy.   After conceding to the market leaders, operations ceased in 2019. 

     

    This experience provided them both with valuable insights about how educational institutions strategize and plan for the futureor not.  As a team they worked with faculty, staff, administrators, and students.

     

    Now, marrying our expertise with that of Kevin and Lenny’s has produced a unique offering tailored to address the roadblocks, large and small, that learning institutions encounter while working toward a consensus for a strategy for the future. 

     

    Hence, the perfect storm of combining the groups’ expertise to bring innovative methodologies to the current crisis higher education is facing.
