Frequently Asked Questions About Witsby™

Access the full list of FAQs here.

Is Witsby replacing Activate?

ASCD plans to wrap up usage of Activate by 2024. We encourage all Activate customers to contact ASCD to discuss the right plan and timeline for your district's migration to Witsby. In the meantime, Activate users will continue to have access to Activate.

How much does Witsby cost?

Witsby is a seat license product, so the cost is dependent on the number of licenses purchased. It is recommended that every educator on a team has a seat license so everyone can access Witsby's resources. Pricing is tiered based on number of users. Existing Activate customers will be grandfathered in at their current cost for the first Witsby subscription year. Generally, its best for each person to have their own account because Witsby tracks individual learning data. Contact Partnership Team for pricing.

Do I have to be an ASCD member to access Witsby?

No, you do not have to have an ASCD membership to purchase Witsby "seats." However, membership with ASCD does have many benefits. Learn more here.

What challenges does Witsby solve?

Time constraints, lack of access to quality content, limited technology time or resources, and flexibility are all challenges that educators face. Witsby allows users to search for, find, engage with, and then implement professional learning that meets their needs, right when they need it, 24/7, on any device. Schools/districts can also create their own learning resources, creating a one-stop shop for Professional Learning.
