Empowering Adult Learners
DSD Usage: Platform, Integrations, Onboarding & Design Coaching, and Dedicated Support. 
LWT aspires to make teaching and learning easy and fun by providing superior early literacy solutions, combined with high-quality professional learning and innovative, multi-sensory materials for educators and families.
The Challenge:
LWT spent nearly a year on due diligence to identify a platform and a partner that would provide leading LMS/LXP capabilities. In addition, they sought a partner that would listen to their needs and offer the agility to allow them to start small, while providing the capacity to help them progressively transform their conception of effective professional learning and scale and grow with them over time.
The Solution:
LWT selected DSD to support those challenges and needs. In Year 1, they invested in learning all about the DSD functionalities to enable them to build flexible professional learning opportunities and streamline how they plan and manage the process with and for their participants, from registration through knowledge checks and certificates of completion.

Through a dynamic and elevated onboarding process with the DSD team, they were able to swiftly design and create templates to organize relevant content and provide enhanced engagement and collaboration opportunities. The teams worked together to set up Single Sign-On and integrations between DSD and LWT’s Customer Relationship Management and Marketing systems. LWT learned how to set up and establish the processes needed to streamline access, reporting, and ongoing communication flows with their learners.

LWT content developers appreciate the intuitive design tools. Their operational teams are getting learners online, prepared, and ready to engage. Facilitators enjoy getting to know participants, building learning communities, and activating background knowledge prior to live learning sessions. Learners are connecting with each other in meaningful ways and easily accessing timely resources. Stakeholders across teams are beginning to view and discuss results to fuel progressive improvements to content and process and to guide appropriate next steps along learning paths.

Looking ahead, LWT will be expanding their use of DSD engagement functionalities and formative assessment capabilities. They will be further optimizing workflows and reporting. They’ve started planning to create a next-gen resource repository that will be available as a curated self-service tool, in order to meet the just-in-time needs of their learners. They will also be exploring the DSD coaching features to provide additional job-embedded teacher support. LWT is excited about these next steps with DSD!
