BLENDED LEARNING

Both online and offline tools and tailormade courses to enhance cultural intelligence of international skilled workers

 

In cooperation with the European Union and nearly 100 universities from  Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia

Personalised Learning

Technological advancements enable us to overcome one of the most difficult challenges of universal education — that of tailoring education on the basis of personal abilities. We harness technology to make learning meaningful and enjoyable by assessing ability, skill, and interest of the learner.

Intelligent Platform

Technology allows us to develop intelligent systems that learn and evolve together with the learner — so that the learning objectives can be achieved much more meaningfully than that of traditional methods. We combine technology with pedagogy and psychology to make learning engaging and delightful.

Merging Digital and Physical

Merging advanced technology with learning does not mean to do away the benefits of traditional learning. We blend online and field learning so that the learners navigate through the worlds they create as part of the learning. This enables them to learn through diversities and differences.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?

We are here to rethink the current mainstream way of learning and education. Mostly, modern higher education is still intricately tied to a very old European institution — the medieval university. Of course, a lot has changed from CE 1088 when the University of Bologna is believed to have founded. But they are not the most innovative institutions around, not even the ones that were founded in the nineteenth century following the Humboldtian model when the secular, scientific education was set to be the benchmark of learning to replace the scriptures.
With digital technologies, two trends began to appear in education. The first supplemented digital tools to the existing system, the same way universities adapted to printed books centuries back. The second trend is to replace the existing system with everything digital — a system of online learning that would transcend the constraints of space, time and scale.  Both these help to solve some deep-seated problems in learning but we believe that there is a tremendous potential for combining the both.
Current mobile and digital technologies allow us to make learning personalized and adaptive — to tailor according to each learners’ existing level of knowledge and ability to comprehend. This allows us not to take the learners for granted. In other words, we passed the era of the mythical ‘ideal’ learner. Each of us is unique and we need to be served uniquely.
On the other hand, we do as well acknowledge that there is a tremendous value in campus-based learning where personal and physical interactions, collective behavior, sense of identity and networks of associations are nourished. Therefore, we build a seamless connection between physical and digital learning experiences that fit well for the digital natives who are connected to personal, portable and wearable technologies, but also by bringing them together.
