About Us

Leading the way in online learning development

The Inventorium was designed by a group of academics, teachers and corporate professionals to embody a major shift in the way we think about and deliver education. Our team were early adopters in the online learning space, so we have years of mistakes to draw on. From streaming to the classroom to streaming from the classroom, we have done it all. We draw on lessons learned and a broad base of research. You can read some of the research reports that inspire us at the bottom of the page.

The shift to online learning

With COVID-19 closing schools and disrupting workplaces all around the world, many educators and employers are scrambling to deliver existing classes online rather than shifting to a model designed specifically for online teaching. For many this will mean less genuine learning or even disengagement from learning altogether. Educators adapting to online education may want to take a look at the Inventorium's design document, which explains why online learning necessitates a fundamentally different approach to teaching and learning.
