Business: A mobile-first, micro-learning platform built to make e-learning more accessible for remote audiences.
2.7bn employees – 80% of the global workforce – don’t work at a computer, and so are excluded from the usual e-learning ecosystem. Beyond that, companies have non-employee audiences (customers, stakeholders, service users etc.) they want to engage and educate on key topics, yet engagement and ease of use are a big challenge.
Founded in early 2021, GoodCourse is already supporting companies and universities looking to have impact on topics like inclusion, sexual harassment, wellbeing, workplace skills, and more. By deploying highly engaging, TikTok-style content directly to learners’ phones via text message, companies are now able to reach and engage their audiences like never before.
