Waymaker Product Website

Lumen’s Waymaker courseware combines curated OER content with simple-to-use personalized learning tools and learning design engineered to enhance student success, all available inside the learning management system (LMS). Waymaker’s personalized study plan develops students’ metacognitive abilities by providing them with relevant information about their learning, choices about what to do next to develop mastery, and real-time feedback on how their learning is progressing. Waymaker also creates efficiencies for instructors to help them identify and reach out to students with help and encouragement when and where needed. Lumen Learning provides complete, customizable course materials designed using open educational resources (OER) to replace expensive textbooks in high-enrollment college subjects. Lumen courses save time and effort for instructors in course design, while students save millions in textbook costs.
