The CourseStage consulting team affords expertise from multiple sectors to organizations that offer online education to professional learners.

We are academics. We are association learning technology developers. And we’ve been in the learning technology biz for almost forty years. So we’ve come to know a thing or two about professional development learning programs for associations, medical societies, and other member-based professional groups.

Our consulting services maximize your processes for efficiency and quality, with everything from learning business plans to situational learning design. We keep up to speed on the rapid pace of change in the eLearning industry so you don’t have to, and we guarantee improved time to market and overall program success.

Our consulting practice’s mission is to help our clients grow their online learning businesses.  Our collective experiences teaching online courses at the university level, our serious approach to staying abreast of the latest eLearning technology used by enterprises, colleges and national associations and our hands on experience as innovators for both content development and delivery platforms makes us ideal consultants to collaborate with you on your online learning business strategy.

Our eLearning business planning and consulting services include client-focused research, learning strategy, and organizational structure consultation to determine our clients’ growth goals. Our innovative approach supports learning initiatives from the ground up.


We begin with a diagnostic consultation to evaluate your current eLearning program and pair that assessment with our knowledge of where you’re looking to take not only your educational programs, but your organization as a whole. Count on us to focus on efficiency, quality, and success.


As your learning department grows, you’ll need to specialize particular functions that might once have been handled by a team of one or two. Our managed services give you the assurance that these functions will be done in a professional and efficient way to improve member satisfaction and meet your educational goals.
