In early 2018 we helped The Mind Lab by Unitec to bring to life an LMS for primary school teachers in New Zealand called “The Digital Passport” – to help decipher the new Digital Curriculum and prepare the NZ teacher force for the future of education in Aotearoa.
With the launch of the new digital curriculum, all primary teachers in New Zealand are required to upskill. It is a requirement of The Ministry of Education that all schools and kura upskill in digital technologies by 2020. As one of the largest providers of postgraduate programmes for teachers in New Zealand, The Mind Lab by Unitec saw the need for a fun, fast-phased, engaging video-based learning platform to help deliver the new digital curriculum.
Through a very close collaboration with education experts and teachers, Osynlig created an e-learning platform to allow primary teachers to learn about everything in the new digital curriculum on any device. By following our user-centred process we helped The Mind Lab define, scope, prioritise, validate and refine a first MVP platform to be released within only 3 months from project start. Osynlig was responsible for the user experience, user interface design and development of the whole platform.
Since launching in March 2018, over 10,000 New Zealand primary teachers have signed up for The Digital Passport with an average of 1,500 teachers logging in to complete training modules each month.
