Expert Tutors

The learning space exists between live synchronous learning and "synchronous" web based virtual learning. Participants successfully engage with the courses both in real time and in their own time via recordings. Our tutors and guest experts deliver short blocks of learning built around a Bespoke curriculum.

Learning Experience

Our online participatory courses are a tried and tested formula of synchronous and asynchronous online learning. The methodology has been used to teach various design based projects for over five years and the expertise built around the learning experience is second to none. We offer a scalable and highly flexible learning model that can engage participants in a variety of curricula at all levels of ability.

Social Learning

Using a socially constructed model of education, participants work through a series of online workshops and extensions to develop understanding and skills in the safe hands of the specialist tutor. Guest experts and professionals join each live session to endorse and extend the tutor lead class and to underpin the validity of the learning with industry standards and expertise.

Embedded and Extended Learning

Participant interaction happens live during the class creating an engaged learning community in the form of text. Often the Q and A that is developed during these sections of the classes develop consensus and clarity. Participants prove competency by completing offline tasks to ensure learning is embedded and extended.
