“At first I knew nothing about computers. I didn’t even know what a ‘mouse’ was! I
was also shocked when we were told that the progress mark was 80%. But I soon

We’re a team of people who are passionate about changing the way you learn, and using the power of technology to put you in control of your own learning.

What we do ...

We develop simulation-based learning programs,We have also created a model for establishing computer centres in low-resource environments.We have established a franchise model which encompasses the entire system for setting up a centre, from low-cost hardware, to purpose-built software (primarily our own program CompuTutor Office).  We have also pioneered a unique low-bandwidth model for delivering online training. whereby the content resides on a local file server, and administration (registration and scorekeeping) occur in the cloud on our SkillWise server. This system enables us to manage in real time the training occurring in all of the remote centres which are part of our franchise.
