DelCor Technology Solutions

TECHNICAL EXPERTISE + MARKET INTELLIGENCE + ASSOCIATION ACUMEN

DelCor is a premier provider of strategic technology consulting, hosting, and managed services for mission-driven organizations. Our wide-ranging IT services are designed around you—to advance your mission, vision, and business goals. Founded in 1984 by CEO Loretta Monterastelli DeLuca, FASAE, DelCor is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, with operations in Chicago and clients worldwide. Our enduring commitment to associations has garnered prestige for Loretta and our team—including ASAE’s Academy of Leaders and TRENDS Partner of the Year—and is why we continue to advance association technology through efforts such as Association Forum’s SmartTech Conference and ASAE Foundation’s Technology Success and Readiness Study.

YOUR MISSION IS OUR MISSION.

Mission-driven organizations readily embrace your ‘why.’ We aim to help you realize your goals through our unique technology approach based on a commitment exclusively to mission-driven organizations. Our longevity is representative of our commitment to this community—it even extends to the impact we strive to make in our local community. Our clients include trade associations, professional societies, foundations, unions, and nonprofits—organizations working on behalf of causes that matter. While DC is a hub of activity, DelCor serves organizations coast to coast and even around the globe.

WE’RE DRIVEN BY IT MATURITY.

Technology is misunderstood in many organizations. Seen only as a tool, a cost center, or a disruptor, its potential—and the potential of the organization—is limited. With the strategic and integrated approach to technology that our IT Maturity Model provides, your organization, members, and constituents benefit from technology that’s aligned with your mission. Our IT Maturity Model is based on decades of working with associations and nonprofits on hundreds of technology projects. It guides our approach to helping you achieve your mission, vision, and business goals and served as the basis for ASAE Foundation’s Technology Success and Readiness Study.

NO STRATEGIC IT NEED IS OMITTED.

Our commitment to your success, spearheaded by a well-heeled team of consultants in all areas of technology management, runs deeper than any single project.

DelCor consultants are experts in:

• custom technology assessments

• online strategy and digital transformation

• mission-critical software selection

• complex technology project management

• CIO services and staffing

• managed IT services

• cloud migration and hosting

• cybersecurity safeguards

We offer a proactive, strategic approach to technology management, but we’re also here to talk through your questions, problems, and ideas.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

Our approach is informed by hundreds of engagements with associations and nonprofits, but we focus specifically on what’s unique about your organization to provide personalized support, develop a technology strategy that advances your mission, and recommend solutions that best match your needs. Our clients deeply value our technical expertise and knowledge about vendors—their products, integrations, history, plans for growth, and ability to support you. Most importantly, DelCor has no vested interest in any external product or vendor, so you get candid advice focused entirely on your success. Our recommendations are based on a true understanding of technology through application, rather than theory alone.

DON’T SETTLE FOR JUST ANY IT CONSULTANT.

When you entrust your IT strategies and solutions to partners, you want someone who understands your operations and culture. We get it, because our team have 200 years of collective experience as association executives themselves. Naturally, you expect well-honed technical chops, too. Our consultants are the heart of DelCor, and we are constantly learning and listening to keep our skills sharp. DelCor staff have earned numerous certifications and accolades including CAE, CCSA, CompTIA, ITIL, MCSE, and PMP—each one representative of the drive and knowledge we bring to our clients and the association community. With DelCor working for you, you benefit from unparalleled expertise and experience.

Higher Learning Technologies, Inc. (HLT)


Higher Learning Technologies, Inc. (HLT) is an industry-leading mobile learning company. With significant capital investment, we have developed a robust and scalable platform to develop, deploy, and support multi-platform mobile apps focused on test preparation and mobile learning (mLearning). By multi-platform, we mean that our apps can be installed and used natively on any iOS or Android device, or through any web browser from a PC or tablet. Users can install our products on multiple devices and have their progress dynamically synchronized across all to study anytime, anywhere in the medium of their choice.


HLT was founded in 2012 by Alec Whitters, at that time a dental student at the University of Iowa. Frustrated by being required to use thousands of cumbersome paper flashcards to study for the dental boards, Alec tried to work with educational publishers to instead deliver this content using mobile technology. When he couldn’t get others to develop an effective mLearning solution, he decided to create it himself, and HLT was formed.


HLT’s initial success was in the health sciences market, with our flagship products focused on the nursing licensure exam and the dental boards. Today, more than 80% of nursing and dental students in the United States download and use our products. Our social media communities in these markets include more than 700,000 followers, our social media reaches more than 2 million people per day, and our individual campaigns have reached as many as 40 million people. We leverage these social media communities to refine and improve our products and to conceptualize new products. We apply direct input and engagement from our learning communities to help meet the future needs of our customers. As a result, HLT now has more than twenty mobile apps that support nursing students and practicing nurses in all phases of their career, and six mobile apps that support dental students and professionals. Our process is scalable and has been applied to other market verticals, such as medical, financial and business services, transportation, real estate, and others. To date, HLT products have been installed by more than 10 million users.


Over the past year, HLT has spent significant time and effort expanding our platform to effectively deliver instructional content, reference materials, and continuing education. Working with some of the nation’s leading credentialing bodies, we have also developed a platform for to deliver longitudinal assessments for use in maintenance of certification. While this platform positions us to work with other associations to leverage this technology, the process we developed to work with association leaders, key stakeholders, and members to conceptualize, adapt, and implement the recertification process is our ‘secret sauce’. We look forward to meeting with other organizations who seek to raise the level of engagement with their members through the use of mLearning technology.

SelfStudy


Knowledge Is Power, Time Is Precious

The professionals you serve need to stay current with a rapidly evolving body of knowledge to be the best at what they do. SelfStudy's AI-powered cloud platform, SelfStudy360, ensures they have exactly what they need to know when they need to know it, without having to spend time and effort searching for it.


Level Up with Machine Learning

SelfStudy360’s adaptive machine learning takes the burden off staying current by continually assessing individual knowledge and matching your content in real time to specific needs and interests. Users just browse a personalized feed on their preferred device, wherever and whenever they have a free moment.

Like GPS navigation that gets them where they’re going faster, SelfStudy360 dynamically adjusts based on individual and community interactions to bridge personal knowledge gaps on a guided path to ongoing professional excellence.


Personalized Discovery

Professionals no longer have to find the knowledge they need. Now, the knowledge finds them.

SelfStudy360 works just like Google, Facebook, and Amazon. It takes your past, present, and future content in all formats (print, video, podcasts, etc.) and puts the most relevant pieces in a personalized feed, based on preferences and individual and community interactions.

It’s ready for phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop, and it’s exactly what people have come to expect from their online services.


Personalized Learning

Technology continues to change the way we learn, but personalization remains king.

Massive Open Online Courses and peer-to- peer sharing have moved education beyond the classroom and changed the roles of educators. What’s missing is dynamic instruction tailored to individual learners’ needs.

SelfStudy360 keeps each learner on a personalized path that prevents time-consuming detours. It's the first learning optimization system for professionals that continuously assesses and adapts to an individual’s current knowledge to fill gaps and accelerate mastery and retention of mission-critical information.

Best of all, it’s effective with just a few minutes per session - whenever and wherever convenient.


Continuous Assessment for Certification

You can easily create your own certification programs (from badging to high-stakes longitudinal assessment) to certify users’ proficiency in specific areas of their profession.

Join the move to continuous assessment with SelfStudy360’s engine that accurately measures knowledge over time to eliminate cramming and increase learning and retention.

Generate convenient and effective test prep programs for third-party exams, or offer traditional exams for people to take wherever they are, whenever they’re ready.

Either way, SelfStudy360’s continuous assessment lets you accurately measure knowledge against any industry or in-house standard.


Personalized Training

Simply sitting through a course or seminar doesn’t automatically translate to success. SelfStudy360 provides cost - and time - efficient competency-based training, not calendar-based training, to help ensure comprehension and retention.

A dashboard for program directors has easy-to-use tools for continuously and accurately assessing learners’ knowledge against any standard. Program directors can identify those who are having trouble or need more or slightly modified support, and they’ll know with confidence when learners have achieved competency.

SelfStudy360 also provides meaningful feedback on how your content and curriculum are performing to help you improve both. Plus, credit tracking and reporting makes it easy for you to report credits your users earn to relevant institutions.

Simple Publishing Tools

SelfStudy360 gives you total control. It fully automates migration of all your archived and current content, and our Curator content management system gives you the freedom to make updates and push new content whenever you want. Directly, with no intermediaries.
