We've been working on a very exciting research trial with Petroc College as well as Innovate UK on the 'Techknowledgey Transfer Project' that's been funded by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
We decided to build an app that would combine marketing with tech and were asked to develop our very own software that could help increase the use of technology in small businesses by offering support through student-based projects. So we’ve been designing our very own online application that explores social media through technology.
UX / UI Design
The platform aimed to provide an online learning environment that was necessary during the pandemic, by offering live Q&As as well as online masterclasses all written, recorded and edited by our team. We designed Learn with the intent of helping small business owners grow online by offering student-based projects as well as access to fundamental tools, like an online image bank as well as a social media calendar where they can plan and schedule content. We also offer a website audit where users can view how their site is performing and see if there are any technical and SEO mistakes.
We wanted to offer help in the workplace through innovative tech, as well as support students to help them network with local businesses to gain first-hand knowledge of career opportunities. This will prepare them for the workplace so that in the future, they can start their very own businesses. If the project is successful, there's potential to grow the scheme so that it'll be incorporated by other academic institutions across the UK.
