Your learning space

Imagine your company as an old clipper roaming around the Sea of Knowledge, where there are hidden treasures and trading opportunities on each island, unexplored cities and unknown spaces.

The hidden treasures and products are the skills that enable you to navigate effectively your environment, work well with others, perform well, achieve goals and guide your team members to do so. We invite you to on this quest and hunt for treasures and products which support you in making your company perform better and be more competitive.

Start on journey and initiate the quest for the hidden treasures and products, you roam around the sea, explore the island and city. When you navigate across the Sea of Knowledge, you will be able to decide which island to explore and which buildings to search.  You are the captain of defining your route, this means you are the one in charge of your own learning path. There is no pre-established learning path.

The islands represent the knowledge units, which are made up of knowledge pills which are represented by the buildings. A knowledge pill is the basic item for our learning approach, these are short, concise lessons, built up of practical theory, examples and lessons learnt. They also integrate some questions for reflection which you can use for analysing your situation and suggestions for further reading.

Enjoy the quest through the map or by selecting from the menu!!

You roam around the sea and visit islands, and explore buildings to acquire the knowledge and skills you need.

The names of all islands have some historical reference related to the age of the Renaissance, and each building is modelled after famous or less known Renaissance buildings across Europe. Click on the links for more information on the names and buildings.
